Woman Wiping Sweat Poster

This vintage print is a head-and-shoulders portrait of a young woman wiping the sweat from her brow. This vintage image by Utamaro Kitagawa was first created in 1798 and this version is a drastic digital alteration. I liked the pink colors in the original and focused on that. The woodcut texture is evident on closer inspection.
