Close to the face of a Geisha, the dramatic white and red make-up which creates the iconic Japanese look. An impressionist piece, the artist's directional brushstrokes are clearly evident...adding life, energy and authenticity to the painting. A beautiful, graphic picture.
The novel Memoirs of a Geisha (1997) tells the story of a fictional geisha working in Kyoto, Japan, before, during and after World War II, and ends with her move to New York City.
