Lynn Matsuoka, COURTESAN DRESSING

2001

About

Courtesan Dressing- She is 21 years old and is now is a Courtesan, she is someone who is hired to be a man's companion, very well educated, immaculately dressed and trained in the strictest of ways to converse on many topics and behave like a lady. She is very well taken care of and is a perfect companion. Beautiful, smart and adorned in the richest of fabrics and jewels. She is more of a companion, usually hired by very wealthy gentlemen to go to the opera or dinner. Her evenings start around six pm, and she comes home a respectable hour nine or ten pm, dropped off in a car. The dressing routine is ritualistic, as an older woman who was once a courtesan herself will assist in dressing them. She knows from personal experience the intricacies of wrapping the three or four layers of kimono as someone did for her in her younger years. Captured in this painting, the fabric used in the kimono is woven from gold thread, so there is a high-quality gold reflective paint to show the detail in the textile she is wearing.
