L'œuvre-maîtresse d'INAMURA Takamasa, composée de deux séries : les superbes portraits des Danseuses (1948-1954) de NAGAI Kafu, avec la célèbre danseuse de music hall Gipsy Rose, et les remarquables clichés des danseuses de music hall japonais (1976), sur scène et en coulisse, exposées au Nikon Salon de Ginza en 1976. Belle impression aux noirs profonds.
