Genji's Festival of Alluring Flowers, 1862

Comments - Interesting depiction of Prince Genji and his companions enjoying a festival of flowers. The young nobleman relaxes on a bench at a tea stand at right, grinning as he looks over his shoulder. The boy in the center waves a fan excitedly as his young companion pulls a cart holding a festival float which consists of a large wicker vase of peonies, chrysanthemums, and plum blossoms, with splashing waves cascading over the support. At right, a woman gestures to the children as she happily chats with Genji. An attractive design, nicely detailed.
