Comments - Terrific image of the nobleman and poet Ariwara no Narihira traveling east from Kyoto. In the center, he rides a dappled horse, shading his eyes with his sleeve as he pauses to look back. At left, a pair of palace guards stops for a cup of sake at a roadside stand, the beauty smiling as she serves them, a young boy grinning happily as he peers around his mother's back. Golden yellow clouds separate the figures from a majestic view of Mt. Fuji. A beautiful design with wonderful detail. The first time we've seen this Kunisada triptych.
