Spring of Japan・・・・・ きょう さくらが開花しましたネ＾＾
Kotani Chigusa 木谷千種 (1890-1945), a female Japanese artist, painted this picture. A very beautiful and soft painting. The woman is as beautiful as the cherry blossoms she is surrounded by, also the color of her complexion is a nuance of the flowers. The falling leaves are decorative. She wears a beautiful kimono with contrasting colors of the obi and the underwear. Her gesture is shy and young as the spring.
