Fashionable Beauties

From Fuji Arts’ Curated Tokyo Collection - We recently acquired an especially fine collection in Tokyo with prints from the Edo, Meiji, and shin-hanga traditions. All the prints are fine, interesting examples in nice condition. We’re excited to offer our Tokyo Collection prints with the discerning collector in mind. Shop the collection this month, and watch for the “A Fuji Arts Curated Tokyo Collection Print” subtitle to locate and shop from this beautiful collection. Bid or “buy now” as these fine prints are hard to come by.

Comments - Lovely triptych depicting three beauties on a verandah looking out over the water. The woman at right holds a shamisen plectrum or pick, the black lacquer case for the instrument on the floor beside her. She smiles at her companion in the center, who looks up from a cup of sake. Large lacquer trays set on the tatami mats hold bowls and dishes of food, and a blue and white ceramic basin rests next to a sake kettle. The location offers a wonderful view of the ocean beyond, with many ships dotting the horizon and clouds drifting across the sky. A walled courtyard below includes stone lanterns and a red torii gate leading to a shrine at right. A beautiful design with attractive color and wonderful detail in the setting.
