Original Hirano Hakuho (1879 - 1957) Japanese Woodblock Print
Arranging Hair, circa 1932

Comments - Beautiful Hirano woodblock of a beauty after a bath, arranging her hair, her robe casually tossed aside on the floor. Her face is hidden from view as she adjusts a hairpin, adding a slightly mysterious quality to the image. A large round shoji window beautifully frames the figure, echoing the graceful curving lines of the body. The soft green floor and gray wall are enlivened with swirling baren marks. A lovely shin-hanga design and a wonderful choice for a collector, in beautiful condition.
