Remarques & avis / Review — A beautiful ink painting (sumie) of female hips and pubis, on luxury Japanese paper, by the Japanese painter and cartoonist Kon SHIMIZU (1912-1974), famous for his caricatures, kappas and tiny nude women! Six masterful, fluid, unhesitating strokes, and a more personal, much less childish style than usual. This work was most probably never meant to be exhibited or published.

Une superbe peinture à l'encre (sumie), de hanches et pubis féminin, sur papier japonais de luxe, par SHIMIZU Kon (1912-1974), célèbre pour ses caricatures, kappas et petites femmes nues. Six touches de maître, fluides et sûres, et style plus personnel et bien mois enfantin qu'à l'habitude. Cette œuvre ne fut probablement pas destinée à être exposée ou publiée.
