Art on Tuesday: Female Dancer


This picture was painted by the female Japanese artist Uemura Shôen 上村 松園 (1875-1949). She was very famous for her bijin-ga, pictures of beautiful women. The ukiyo-e shows a female dancer in a light summer kimono with large cherry blossoms in green and white. She wears an obi in contrasting deep blue with a leave pattern and a very interesting hat, which shows her elaborate hairstyle from the back. She is swinging in her dancing movements. She is in a very good mood!
