OK, we're going to need the art experts out there to step forward.
This art print, framed by a paper matte, was acquired, I believe, by my great-grandmother during a trip to Japan in the early 1960s. It ended up in an album of travel mementos and never saw the light of day again until Mom and I came across it during one of our (nearly) endless rounds of going through everything in the Oak Crest Lane house.1
The portion of the illustration that shows through the matte is about four inches wide.2
geisha (though it seems odd that her legs are white, too).
There's a signature on the right-hand side of the print, but I can't read Japanese, so we'll need some help there, too.
A Google image search didn't turn up anything helpful.
Shown below is the full image underneath the matte. As you can see, a good bit of the artist's work has been cropped out.
Thoughts and feedback welcome!
