Pensive Maiko 1920s

This photographic postcard has a wonderful composition and a deft use of light and shadow. The organic form of the tree branch seems to echo the Maiko girl’s posture. Possibly Suzuei (鈴栄) Bell-ring Prosperity, from around 1926, definitely a contemporary of Hatsuko and Hiroko as maiko (apprentice geisha).

GEISHA FIXING THEIR HAIR

The Geisha are real. Mt. Fuji is Fake. Notice how the photographer was careful to include the pouch of hair-dressing tools in the picture. If you have the "ALL SIZES" button above the image, perhaps you can see them more closely. In this 1870s-80s image, my eye is caught by the attractive "little waves" in the hair of the seated girl.

She appears in the 1939 Miyako Odori (Cherry Dance) programme. I like the Itomaki (thread spool) pattern on her naga-juban (inner kimono).
