Comments - Charming portrait of a courtesan standing beside a lamp with an ornately shaped shade. She smiles as she looks down, one sleeve gently touching the edge of the shade, the other tucked into her obi. She wears a pale pink kimono with scattered gray motifs over a red under robe, ties with a gray sash. A sweetly expressive figure.
