Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty at Night

Comments - Interesting portrait of a beauty standing in the street beside a large display in case of fire of a tub of water topped with a pyramid of buckets. She leans forward with a happily grin, a roll of tissues in one hand and the other clutching the edge of her outer robe. Her kimono is shaded from violet to blue-green bordered with maples leaves and toy balancing dolls. A blossoming cherry tree frames the night sky at upper right. An attractive design, nicely detailed.
