A 20th century Japanese woodblock print of a bijin, or beautiful girl by Hasegawa Sadanobu III (1881-1963). Sadanobu specialized in prints of maiko, or dancing girls. This print was used as a means of illustrating the skill of the kimono and obi maker. It is done with special applications of black pigment to highlight the kimono and the girl’s hair. There is water damage to the bottom and loss of the upper right corner that can be flattened and covered by a mat.
