The Kan'en Era (1748) - Attractive portrait of a Kan'en Era beauty, looking up as she holds the collar of her under robe, her mouth slightly open. Her light brown kimono features tie-dyed circular motifs, worn over a pale green floral robe and an under robe with a tie-dyed pattern of tiny squares in red, white, and blue. Her hair is pulled back into a curving mass at the base of her neck, with a knot above held in place with a comb and a decorative hairpin. The inset above shows three people admiring a display of court dolls and accessories for the Doll Festival on Girls' Day. A charming design with delicate line work in the hair and soft color.
