An original painting, full colour on paper, 39.75 x 15.25 in; 101 x 38.75 cms. Shows a beauty erotically biting a cloth. The kimono is decorated with a strong motif of flowering plants. The school was founded by Kaigetsudo Ando (1671-1743). He had a tight-knit atelier of artists who followed his style of large single standing beauties with bold drapery and small faces. There are many copies of the leading Kaigetsudo artists and it’s refreshing to have an unquestionably authentic painting of the period, c early 1710s. Minor imperfections but all in line with the age of the painting, otherwise good condition.
Status: Sold
