Beauty with Iris Blossoms - Charming portrait of an upper-class beauty of the Imperial court posed in front of oversize iris blossoms in purple and white. She smiles as she looks ahead, her hair pulled sleekly back into a long ponytail. She wears a purple and red outer kimono over white under robes, and has a folding fan tucked into her obi. The irises are beautifully detailed and form a striking backdrop for the figure against a sky shaded from red to white to pale blue. Accented with faint embossing in the white robe. A rarely seen Yoshitoshi beauty series.
