Beauty in an Iris Garden - Lovely design of a young beauty strolling through an iris garden, pausing at the water's edge to admire the blue blossoms in the water below. She wears a blue and white stripes kimono tied with a red obi, and carries an umbrella with the popular "snake's eye" pattern. A charming beauty subject, beautifully drawn with graceful line work and detailed with faint cloth embossing on the white stripes and a silver metallic pigment that has oxidized to a darker tone on the obi.
