Art on Tuesday: Cherry Blossom Dance

uemura_shoen_cherryblossom
This charming picture was painted by the female Japanese artist Uemura Shôen 上村 松園 (1875 – 1949) with watercolor on silk in 1914/15.  Two girls are dancing. They are both wearing a kimono in spring colors, light green and yellow, and an elegant hairstyle. The sleeves of the front girl are showing cherry blossoms. She wears traditional white tabi socks and lacquer wooden shoes.  She is holding a golden fan in her hand. This is a joyful scene of the upcoming spring. Hopefully soon.
