Beauty Portraits by Sadakage - Interesting design from a series of beauty prints by Sadakage II featuring a moveable flap that reveals a kabuki character, in the clever form of the cover of a book that opens, located next to the title cartouche at upper right. The young women appear in scenes from everyday life in nicely detailed interior settings, each with a sweet expression on her face. Few prints feature the addition of a flap, and it's rare to find them intact. Some designs include deluxe techniques such as burnishing. Beautifully detailed with extremely fine line work in the hair and vibrant color. An attractive series in a novel and rarely seen format.
