A Fuji Arts Winter Exhibition Item - We are excited to have purchased a couple Japanese collections with a range of rare and sought after designs. We’ve put them together in a winter exhibition and will post them over one week. The items range from Edo through Meiji and up to contemporary. So, there’s something for everyone. The unifying theme is that each print is a great example or very rare item to find in the market. Enjoy shopping the Winter Exhibition.
Clearing Weather at Awazu, 1847 - 1852 - Lovely scene of Prince Genij and his companions enjoying the cherry blossoms on a spring day at Awazu. The young nobleman sits on a bench beneath a flowering tree as petals drift down through the sky, grinning at the beauties accompanying him. The woman at left waves a happy greeting, her sleeve blowing in the breeze. In the center, a girl carries a fine lacquer tray with a few perfect blossoms on it. A castle can be seen at upper left, and sails dot the water in the distance. A beautiful design with wonderful detail. The first time we've offered this rare Kunisada II triptych, also in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
