Description

A beautiful kimono and graceful movement make this vintage style phone cover feminine and elegant.

This lady is enjoying the cool breeze on the Ryōgoku Bridge, an Edo (Tokyo) bridge over the Sumida. It had a graceful arch and was an inspiration to many artists. Hiroshige painted it many times.

This is a Hiroshige work, but it is under the family name Utagawa, which means it was probably earlier on in his career when he worked for Utagawa Toyohiro. It is a Bijin-ga, an image of a beautiful woman that was popular material of the time. Her red under-kimono, elaborate hair, and the fact that she has exposed the back of her neckline mean that it is possible she was an oiran (a high-class courtesan), not geisha. Although we in the west have trouble telling the difference, it would be important to know in Japan!
