Object Description
Edo period Japanese color woodblock print with an image of Iwai Hanshiro, standing, with flowers.

Iwai Hanshiro is dressed as a courtesan but wears a courtier’s lacquered cap, which suggests that he is playing a role where a woman is taking the guise of a male imperial court official. The delicate patterns of the furisode (long sleeves) give an elegance to his kimono and suggest the graceful dances for which Hanshiro was noted.

Publisher
Mikawaya (Mikawa-ya Seiemon) seal.
