The Yamuri Shibun

Regular price $450.00 Sale

Carrying a parasol with the text of the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper emblazoned across it, the geisha-like figure wearing a traditional, fanciful robe of orange and black cloth is admired by three men in three-piece suits. A classic theme of Christine Amarger, the inclusion of newsprint and the focus on newspapers in her work is reflected by the parasol featuring an actual Japanese newspaper in business since the 19th century.
