A portrait of a beauty completed entirely in Prussian blue. Entering Japan from the West, the then expensive and exotic pigment sparked a wealth of inspiration for artists during the Edo period (c. 1603-1868). The demand for this colour is clear from the fact entire works were composed in it almost monochromatically, with perhaps the most famous example being Katsushika Hokusai’s (1760-1849) 'The Great Wave off Kanagawa' (1829–1832).
