Prince Genji in an Autumn Garden, 1869

Comments - Attractive depiction of Prince Genji in a garden in autumn on a moonlit night. He stands at left, admiring the glowing full moon, wearing a purple coat patterned with cherry blossoms over a light blue kimono. In the center, a beauty crouches behind him holding his sword upright. Her kimono is shaded from red to yellow with large peonies. A beauty and a young girl pause at right to look back at her, the breeze blowing their kimono sleeves. Fall grasses and flowers provide a backdrop for the figures, with boats anchored in the harbor beyond next to a large rounded island. A handsome collaborative design with by Kunichika and Hiroshige III. A lovely scene with vibrant color.
