Following up on Christine Guth's book on The Great Wave, I'm looking into Western female artists, who depicted women wearing kimonos or other Japonisme-influenced garments. For instance, Marie Danforth Page! This picture of a craftswoman at the turn of the 20th C in a gorgeous house-robe fits right into interweaving strands of inspiration for my fiction. She even painted herself in a blue-and-white kimono.
