Comments - Beautiful kakemono or vertical diptych of a young geisha carrying a paper lantern on a pole. She wears a blue and gray kimono trimmed in a brown print with a black collar, tied with a black obi. Her hair is piled high atop her head with hairpins and combs, and she looks down as she hurries along, clutching her robe through her checked apron to make walking easier. A beautiful composition with curving lines leading the eye through the image, and a wonderful use of bold areas of black. A knockout design that would make an impressive framed display. A lovely example of Eizan's beauty prints.
