by Chikanobu (1838 - 1912)
Comments - Charming scene of beauties dancing, accompanied by women playing the shamisen at lower left. In the center, a beauty in a black floral kimono strikes a graceful pose with her fan extended while the woman behind her lifts her fan high. At right, a girl chats with a beauty adjusting a hairpin. The room features a verandah that overlooks a view of the water with a bridge crowded with pedestrians crossing the river. Lovely detail in the elegant kimono and obi fabrics and the interior setting. Only the second time we've seen this attractive Chikanobu triptych.
