uemura_shoenEvening ( 夕べ ) by  Uemura Shôen 上村松園 (1875-1949). A woman artist of Japan, known for her paintings in traditional Japanese style. Many of her works show women. This picture is very impressive because of the dimly kimono and the hairdo behind a transparent curtain, the flowing lines bestow additional softness on the woman.
