Drowsy: the appearance of a harlot of the Meiji era, No. 30 - An intriguing print depicting a licensed prostitute reclining in an alluring and somewhat lazy fashion. She looks drowsily through half-closed eyes, resting on a pillow on a black lacquer base. She wears a red tie-dyed robe with a purple collar, loosely wrapped about her, and the red of the robe and the mattress convey a certain a feeling of sensuality. A very famous image from the series and one sought-after by collectors. This evocative print of a young prostitute is a classic and compelling Yoshitoshi portrait. Beautifully printed. An excellent lithograph edition of this famous design.
