Art on Tuesday: Two Women

uemurashoen_02

This picture was made by the female painter Uemura Shôen 上村 松園 (1875-1949).
I adore her use of pastel colors and the soft transitions on the woman’s kimono on the left side. I very much like the transparent headgear of the right woman. Both women are very gentle and elegant. On the ground you see momiji – maple leafs. This picture was also made into a Japanese stamp picture  on the occasion of the Japan-Austria year in 2009.
