A superb scroll painting by Taiko Okamoto (1879-1945) of Jigoku Dayu, the legendary Hell Courtesan, depicted here wearing a kimono with a golden dragon rising from the sea, and with a haughty expression tempting the viewer by casually exposing her neck. Superb. Scroll size: 22 inches by 77 inches. Image size: 16 3/4 inches by 48 1/2 inches. Nicely mounted and in very good condition, commensurate with age. No major flaws. More photos available by request.
