Thousand Stitch Belt preparatory drawing (loose hair)

25 3/8 by 18 7/8 in., 64.45 by 48 cm

In this early preparatory drawing for the Thousand Stitch Belt woodblock print from the Flowers of a Hundred Years series, the model's hair is loose and although she appears to be wearing a kimono the details of her appearance are not yet determined. The focused of the drawing is on the positioning of the needle in her right hand and the belt which she holds like a bundle in the nook of her left arm.
