Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Niwaka Festival in the Yoshiwara, 1884

Comments - Handsome kabuki print depicting the Niwaka Festival in the Yoshiwara. The two beauties at left are dressed in men's attire for the procession, each carrying a large red lantern with writing on it and a folding fan decorated with a blossom. The outer kimono of the woman at left features a carp leaping up a water fall, while the beauty in the center wears a robe with a dragon clutching a jewel on it. At right, a courtesan watches them with a displeased expression, her lips firmly set. Behind them, people wander about the street as they prepare for the celebration. An intriguing subject with large expressive figures, nicely detailed.
