Comments - Charming portrait of a beauty looking over her shoulder, wearing a blue, gray, and violet striped kimono tied with a violet obi featuring a fish. This print was originally included in the November 1936 issue of Ukiyo-e Kai (World of Ukiyo-e) magazine. The magazine featured woodblock prints by a number of famous shin-hanga artists in addition to Kotondo, including Hasui and Koitsu. A rare design and a great subject for a collector interested in shin-hanga beauty prints.
