Art on Tuesday: The Heroine Ochiyo

chigusa

This picture shows a Kabuki heroine painted by Kotani Chigusa. I like the moving elegance, the interesting head-gear. The eye brows are painted in light blue. The picture is one of a series about actors, depicting famous characters of Chikamatsu Monzaemon’s (1623-1724) plays.
