Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Dawn at the Villa in Naniwa, 1855

Comments - Charming scene of Prince Genji leaving a villa in Naniwa (Osaka) at dawn. He smiles as a beauty helps him on with a sheer black coat through which the pattern of his kimono is visible. At right, a woman kneels on the floor holding his sword upright, while a companion at left hands down a cloth-wrapped parcel to a waiting servant. The verandah opens onto a view of the water with birds flitting across the sky and a red glow spreading along the horizon and the sun rises. An attractive design with fine shading on the water and sky.
