This is a woodblock print of the relatively unknown artist Hirano Hakuhô. The picture is untitled, but dated to April 1932 and is one of six so-called bijin-ga (pictures of beauties). The Japanese woman wears a beautiful kimono with a typical Japanese print. She is sitting in front of a mirror. It is an excellent picture with detailed drawings in a skillful manner.
