A picture made by Uemura Shôen 上村松園 (1875 – 1949), a female artist who painted mainly beautiful women, the so-called bijin-ga are her specialty.

This beauty is hurrying somewhere from or to a festivity with here amazing blue dress. Shimmering semi-transparent silk I guess, with a light green obi decorated with dandelion flakes, contrasted by the red of her underwear and her slippers. Her head-gear looks elegant and elaborate.
