by Eisui (active circa 1790 - 1823)
Comments - Lovely okubi-e or large "head portrait" of the courtesan Shizuka of the Tamaya. She smiles as she looks ahead, holding a book in her hand. Her hair is pulled back into a large smooth bun with wings at the sides, adorned with a pink ribbon and many hairpins. The bold patterns of her kimono add a nice graphic impact. An attractive, classic Edo era beauty portrait.
