I don't mean to be moany, but she isn't a geisha because her obi(sash) is tied at the back, showing she is a courtesan. A geishas obi would be at the front. Great artwork though! I love her eyes.

That is incorrect information. Courtesan`s obi were tied in the front, so it would be faster to get the kimonos off and on. They were the prostitutes, not the geishas.

Just to confirm the above statement; it's true that a courtesan's obi would be tied in the front, as stated above, to get it off and on faster than if it was tied in the back. On the other hand, a Geisha ties her obi in the back. Read an entire novel on this.

These guys are correct - studying Japanese and Japanese culture, the courtesans tied their obi's at the front so they didn't damage the incredible elaborate knots, or have to retie them over and over! (coz those are INSANE, they take forever to do....) :)

This is a beautiful painting, the colours are stunning.

I hope you don't think this presumptious but i was wondering if you would give me permission to use this image as part of my gcse ICT project? Of course i gain no profit out of it and it's not distributed on anything like that.
