Beauty Drinking Tea - Attractive portrait of a beauty drinking tea from a tiny blue and white porcelain cup delicately balanced between two fingers, her other arm tucked inside the sleeve of her aqua kimono. Her hair is arranged in a smooth bun, with a small lock above her forehead looped back and held in place with a comb. A covered walkway extends into the background, showcasing the carefully drawn perspective and architectural detail. This image appears on page of 64 of Amy Reigle Newland's book, "Time Present and Time Past: Images of a Forgotten Master, Toyoharu Kunichika." A handsome design, nicely colored and detailed.
