by Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861)
Comments - Lovely portrait of a beauty in an iris garden on a summer evening. She smiles as she looks back over her shoulder, the breeze blowing her robe about her. She wears a sheer black kimono with a graphic white pattern over a red under robe, tied with a red brocade obi. Purple iris blossoms and slender green leaves line the water behind her, with a pine tree framing the night sky above. A rectangular inset at upper right depicts the Buddhist Goddess Benzaiten, one of Japan's famous Seven Lucky Gods. An attractive design we've never before offered.
