Toyohara Chikanobu (1838-1912), Japanese ladies in bustles

Japanese art isn't really our subject, but why not some prints in which the East and West come together in curious fashion? The title of this print is 'Chrysanthemums in Full Bloom is the Imperial Palace', so these are plainly very grand ladies indeed. Their dresses are in autumn colours.

A detail from the preceding print.

This seems to be a sort of fashion plate also showing various hairstyles.
