Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait of a courtesan standing on an embankment, a slender pipe in her hand. She wears a blue and white striped kimono over a red under robe, her red print obi tied in a large bow. At left, a dock extends over the water and a tree frames the scene overhead. Nicely detailed.
