Judge's Comments: The handling of the kimono in this painting is what I was drawn to – painted very realistically, but giving me the feeling that the geisha heads were designed by Romannos to be placed where they are to lead you around. The softness at the bottom and the way the folds and shadows lead you to the model’s hand are also very well done. - Kathy Anderson
