Description: This print is from the series, "The Nippon Mokuhan Gasui" (Masterpieces of old Japanese colour prints), a collection of reproductions of various themes and designs published around 1924.

The print features a young woman wearing a black kimono and a red underdress that contrast with her beautiful obi decorated with a dragon flying among blue and red cloud motifs. She has magnificent long hair and based on the title, we can assume that she just washed it and is using it loose so it can dry, she is also wearing combs and accessories to decorate it.

The transparency of the red underwear and bare feet through the thin black fabric is skillfully rendered.
