kimono envy


Girl in a Red Kimono
George Hendrik Breitner (1857-1923)


The Japanese Print
William Merritt Chase (1849-1916)


Lady with a Fan
Charles Sprague Pearce (1851-1914)


Goldfish
Richard Edward Miller (1875-1943)


The Japanese Parisian
Alfred Stevens (1823-1906)


The Silk Kimono
Lee Lufkin Kaula (1865 – 1957)


Woman in Kimono
Mary Brewster Hazelton

I will neither confirm nor deny that I have been researching antique kimonos with a view to purchase one of the aforementioned items. Any conversation that I might have had with MissM on the subject is entirely coincidental. Nothing can be inferred from the large number of images of kimonos on my laptop. MrM will testify that he is completely unaware of any intention related to imminent kimono purchase.

    1. That is my favourite kimono - I love the colours of the fabric and the complementary colours of the flowers and the wallpaper.

    1. Yes - it gives a wonderful silk sheen to the fabric.
