Original Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Japanese Woodblock Print
Shirabyoshi Dancer Kakemono

Comments - Terrific kakemono or vertical diptych of a shirabyoshi dancer standing under a temple bell framed by a blossoming cherry branch. She smiles as she looks over her shoulder, gracefully waving a fan in one hand while stretching out the edge of her sleeve with the other. Her hair is elegantly arranged under a tall court cap, adorned with floral ornaments and ribbons. She wears a beautiful kimono patterned with large blossoms and flowing streams, the curving lines of the water gently moving leading the eye down the page. The hem of her robe trails onto the ground around her, one bare foot peeking from beneath the edge. A lovely design, beautifully drawn and composed.
