Autumn Moon at Ishiyama Temple, 1847 - 1852 - Beautiful night scene of Prince Genji and two companions along the rocky shore of a stream at night. At right, the nobleman tugs at the collar of his kimono, grinning as he looks at the beauty in the center. She turns her head shyly away, hiding her face with one sleeve while nervously biting the other. She wears a red kimono patterned with flowers and colorful ribbon streamers, tied with a gray brocade obi. At left, a young samurai stands at a garden gate, smiling happily as he rests his hand atop the hilt of his sword. Flames rise from a low metal fire basket at right. A full moon glows in the evening sky, with Ishiyama Temple nestled along the side of the hill behind them. Beautifully detailed with fine bokashi shading in the water and sky, and embossing on the beauty's white kimono trim and the centers of the peonies on her robe. A rarely seen design.
