Description: This print is from a collection of woodblock prints of beautiful women from the Meiji period by a number of leading designers of the day, including Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, Ogata Gekko, and Kaburagi Kiyokata. The collection "Meiji no Onna" (Women of Meiji) was published in 1977 by Soudosha, and most of the designs were being reproduced for the first time.

It was originally made for a kuchi-e (magazine frontispiece), and depicts a woman in elegant kimono holding a fan and looking back at an elderly woman carrying a black umbrella.

The open space contrasted with the large umbrella in the foreground makes an interesting composition.


There are a few very slight foxing spots on the print.
