  • Thumbnail for Japanese Woman in Western Dress, Accompanied by a Servant Japanese Garb
    Japanese Woman in Western Dress, Accompanied by a Servant Japanese Garb by Ipposai YOSHITORA (?) (fl. c. 1850-80)

    Presents the contrast between native traditional female garb (worn by the servant girl), and the new European style clothing for women. The figure in Western garb here, however, still holds a Chinese fan shape decorated with a wave pattern. Yoshitora was a pupil of leading late Edo period printmaker Utagawa KUNIYOSHI (1797-1861) was a member of the Yokohama School, but he did not reside there, and probably based his designs on the figures he could have seen in Western engravings. Publisher's seal, with stylized lotus over waves, identifies the publisher as Sakai Kawaguchi.
