Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Prince Genji Visits the Gankiro Teahouse, 1860

Comments - Lovely scene of Prince Genji visiting the Gankiro Teahouse in the spring. He stands outside the entrance in a courtyard filled with blossoming cherry trees and flowering yellow mountain roses. He grins happily as he looks back at the beauty at left, fanning himself. The courtesan at right wears a striking black kimono decorated with a lantern decorated with the face of a foreign man smoking a cigar and trimmed with beaded tassels. A wonderful design filled with lush flowers and handsome detail. Includes burnishing on the black areas of the kimono. The first time we've come across the handsome triptych.
