Description:

Inside the painting "A Geisha's World" I take you back to Japan in the 18th and 19th centuries, where Geishas (Japanese: 芸者; /ˈgeːʃa/), geiko (芸子) or geigi (芸妓) played a major role. A geisha (pronounced "geesja") is a highly educated and respected Japanese hostess who provides entertainment at parties in Japanese teahouses. Her job is to entertain the guests with conversations, or with classical Japanese music provided for singing and dancing. This is typical, strictly styled clothing. Literally, geisha means "art person".
