Courtesan Climbing Stairs Kakemono by Eizan (1787 - 1867)

Original Eizan (1787 - 1867) Japanese Woodblock Print
Courtesan Climbing Stairs Kakemono

Comments - Beautiful kakemono or vertical diptych of a courtesan climbing the stairs, pausing to look back over her shoulder. Her outer geometric patterned kimono is loosely wrapped about her, and she clutches a roll of tissues. Her pink under robe features a delicate embossed floral pattern, trimmed with a bold cherry blossom print collar that matches the collar of her outer robe. Her hair is pulled back into a sleek bun adorned with many decorative hairpins and a ribbon. The figure is drawn with graceful flowing lines, and the composition beautifully suits the vertical format. A lovely Edo era beauty portrait.
