by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)
Comments - Handsome scene of Prince Genji arriving for a visit at the Flower Palace. He pauses as he enters the mansion at left, wearing a striking black coat with a design of herons in flight under falling snow. In the center, a princess smiles shyly into her sleeve as an attendant announces her visitor. Just to the left, a woman peers through the rolled up reed blinds of a low folding screen. The room opens onto a view of lake with blossoming plum or cherry trees and stone lanterns dotting the shore. Beautiful detail in the elegant kimono and setting, including embossing on the white kimono trim and burnishing.
