Description
A young beauty looks away from the viewer, glancing back over her left shoulder. She wears a comb and a flowered hair ornament with a blue and white tassel in her hair and a ring on her left hand. Three layers of kimono are visible: a gray patterned outer kimono trimmed in black; a yellow and orange plaid peeks out under that; and a red kimono patterned with pink and white flowers shows at the neck and wrists. A book tied shut with a red cord is held in her left hand; her right hand, with the sleeve of her kimono pulled up over the fingers, rests on the top of the book. A full red and blue stripped obi held with a black sash hangs behind her.
