Beauty from Meiji 15: Light Snowfall - Lovely shin-hanga design of a beauty during a light snowfall, with just a few large flakes drifting down against the pale gray sky. She fastens the loop of a veil over her ear as she looks up at the snow. This beautiful subject was originally issued as a special insert by the Jiji Newspaper Company to celebrate the paper's fiftieth anniversary. The series depicted beauties from different time periods, here a woman from Meiji 15. Beautifully drawn with a sweetly expressive face. Please note, this is a fine lithograph reproduction, not a woodblock.
