Impression Very Fine.
Skillfully executed "bokashi" shading to face and kimono's designs; shimmering silver "mica" background; nicely over-printed hair-lines; highly detailed carving.
Condition Excellent. Strong colors. Very clean frontside and verso. (A few tiny marks--otherwise flawless.)
Reference/Illus "The Female Image," Plate #152.
Comments Clothed in a fashionable hearts/diamonds/clubs/spades kimono, this "moga" (modern girl) beauty gazes forward hypnotically. Unquestionably Shuho's most recognizable and most sought-after design. An exceptional print--very rarely seen.
