"Beni - Cosmetic in the Meiji Era"
1928
"Beni" was a type of cosmetic used in the late 19th century.
This painting presents a typical daily scene of the period, in which a woman in a short black Japanese overgarment with a Shimada-style knot on the top of her head applies beni.
The patterns on the kimono, the layering of the neckbands, the lip brush and jar of cosmetic lotion, Kiyokata has drawn each with verity and precision.
In this work is seen the keen, precise visual sense he also displayed in the newpaper illustrations he labored over.
