Beauties with a Painting, 1891

Comments - Terrific image of a beauty holding up a painting of a child clamoring at the side of a jolly old man, perhaps the Lucky God Hotei. The seated woman at right smiles as she admires the work, several paper scroll on the floor nearby. Containers of water and brushes are scattered about the floor, along with several rolls of paper. Nicely detailed.
