Beauty with a Watch Chain, 1897 - Handsome portrait of a beauty sitting quietly, looking calmly ahead. She wears a finely striped kimono tied with an obi that reverses from olive green with a pattern of Genji symbols and yarn spools to red with tied-dyed flowers. Interestingly, a watch is tucked into the sash, with the watch chain pinned under her kimono collar. Her white under robe is delicately embossed and features a design of leaves, pink blossoms, and red buds. A lovely image, beautifully printed.
