EIRYU -- QUEEN of the POSTCARD GEISHAS (6)
A cool and confident pose. Slight blur to the face due to her moving when the photo was taken.
Although some would prefer that these prints remain Black and White, it's nice to see the various abilities of the Meiji-era colorists as they aimed to give us a natural "color photo" --- all done patiently by hand with brush and stencil.
Ca.1908-12 hand-colored collotype print.
