Hanazuma and Tsukioka of the Hyogoya - Lovely double portrait of the courtesans Hanazuma and Tsukioka of the Hyogoya. One reads a book while the other looks to the side with a smile. She wears a blue violet outer robe over a green and white kimono patterned with targets and what looks like bridges for a koto, over a rosy pink under robe, tied with a pale blue obi with a geometric design that includes maple leaves. Beautifully detailed with fine line work in the hair.
