Comments - Charming kabuki portrait of Sawamura Tanosuke III as the courtesan Okon of the Aburaya house. She looks up with a smile as she clasps her hands atop a long slender pipe, a mirror and tobacco set on the floor nearby. In the background, a blue curtain with a geometric pattern adds graphic impact. Nicely detailed.
