Courtesan in a Leaping Carp Kimono

Comments - Striking portrait of a courtesan wearing a black kimono patterned with a leaping carp and splashing waves, the fins of the fishing appearing three-dimensional. She leans forward with a slightly concerned expression, her mouth open. Her hair is arranged in a smooth bun adorned with tortoiseshell combs and hairpins. A beautifully detailed Edo era beauty portrait.
