Courtesan in a Doorway - Lovely portrait of a courtesan standing in a doorway, one hand resting against the frame of the shoji panel. She wears a maple leaf print kimono over a red under robe, tied with a black geometric print obi, the fabric trailing on the floor around her feet. Floral hairpins, combs, and a ribbon adorn her hair. Nice handling of the silhouette on the shoji panel. A classic Edo era beauty portrait. A typed label accompanies the print (see below).
