Beauty Smoking - Classic Utamaro portrait of a young beauty smoking a slender pipe. She exhales a puff of smoke, the swirling vapors rendered only with embossed lines, a fantastic detail emulating Utamaro's original. She wears a blue cotton summer kimono patterned with tie-dyed seashells, the robe hanging open at her chest. Beautifully detailed with a shimmering mica background and fine line work in the hair. A terrific design.
