Art on Tuesday: After the Bath

I rather feel like hating this season these days, but this summer ukiyo-e looks so cool. Summers must have been way cooler in the Edo period.

This ukiyo e is made by Torii Kotondo. After the Bath is its title. I like the abstract woodblock painting and the natural appearance of the woman. She is wearing a light cotton kimono and her bathing utensils. Looks very much like summer. I guess in the background are parasols.
