Gift of Hideo Date


Matted and framed.

Portrait of a nude yellow hued woman with green hair. A blue cloth wrapped about her waist, the woman faces the viewer over her right shoulder as she holds her hair in her right hand, eyes downturned. She sits in a tiled area with a gray archway and a raised red border separating it from the red-brown hued area with green walls in the background where three nude women bathe around a gray fountain. A brown hued woman is seated washing her left foot with a red cloth, while behind the fountain a red hued woman with brown hair stands looking in a hand mirror and another bends over holding a while ball to her left shoulder.

Signed in medium to left of Artist's hanko (personal mark, consists of four characters that translate as "Dream seeking layman"), lower left corner: Date
