Uemura Shoen (1875 - 1949) (Japanese), Daughter Miyuki, 1914. Depicts Akizuki Miyuki, the heroine of the joruri drama, "Sho-utsushi Asagao-banashi". Sensing someone approaching while she gazes at a paper fan received from the one she adores, Miyuki glances behind her, hurriedly hiding the fan in her sleeve. This masterpiece by Shoen Uemura from the Taisho period (1912-1926) beautifully captures the heroine's charming, innocent look. by vladtodd
