In November 2007 Paul Binnie visited Kyoto for a lecture at Ritsumeikan University. The old atmosphere of the capital and the maiko that can still be seen walking down the street wearing elaborate kimono with intricate patterns are beautifully rendered in this portrait.
The edition number and artist signature are written in pencil and ‘Binnie’ is embossed on the bottom margin.
