This travel poster was commissioned by the Japan Tourist Association to promote their country to English speaking countries. The image in the poster is based on a Japanese silk screen painted by the Japanese female artist Uemura Shoen (1875-1949) in 1936 titled Noh Dance Prelude.

This beautiful image of a dancer wearing the traditional kimono is the ideal image for promoting Japan to foreigners. The woman is dancing while holding a fan, and wearing a beautiful and delicate red kimono with cloud details. Her white face is a reflection of Japanese beauty customs, and her outfit is a clear connection with the traditional and classical Japan.
