Beauty with a Shamisen, 1861

Comments - Charming kabuki portrait of a seated beauty holding a shamisen in one hand and a blue and white ceramic cup of sake in the other. She smiles as she looks up, a dotted towel draped over the shoulder of her checked kimono. A lamp with writing on the side can be seen at right, and a boldly patterned checked background adds graphic impact. An interesting design.
