Araigami. A young beauty stands outside beneath clouds and sky, combing out her long hair. The feeling is less formal and more relaxed than many of Shinsui’s portraits of women. The hair is beautifully captured; at least three woodblocks were used just to give the hair depth. Sealed and numbered 73/250 verso, from a limited edition.
