Geisha Returning from a Bathhouse Kakemono, circa 1810 - 1820

Comments - Lovely vertical diptych or kakemono of a geisha returning from a bathhouse, a white towel draped across her arm. She wears an elegant green kimono patterned with butterflies and flower buds, trimmed in black and tied with a checked brown obi that reverses to a green stripe. Her hair is pulled back into a smooth bun, and she concentrates her attention on extending the umbrella in her hand. An attractive composition, beautifully filling the space and leading the eye across the page. A wonderful Edo era beauty subject.
