The Art of the Geisha Calendar, Wall, Ronnie Sellers
Geisha. The word alone conjures images of Old Japan. Geisha are women who are first and foremost artists. Far from the Western image of a frail beauty willing to fulfill a man's every whim, these outspoken women are entertainers whose accomplishments include dance, traditional music, tea ceremony, sparkling conversation and a thorough knowledge of current events. Geishas are actresses in a mysterious, private theater performed behind the walls of lavish tea houses and restaurants, virtually unchanged for two hundred years. They are the keepers of Japan's precious cultural heritage, quickly vanishing in the modern world. This calendar brings to life the images of the geisha through portraits from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries by immortal artist such as Ito Shinsui, Kitagawa Utamaro, Hashiguchi Goyo, and Keisai Eisen This 2006 Wall calendar was published by Ronnie Sellers.
