Beautiful Court Ladies in Spring: A Performance of the Play Dojo-ji by the Kita School of Noh, 1880 - Attractive triptych depicting members of the Imperial court watching a Noh theater performance of the play "Dojoji" at the Kita School of Noh. An actor kneels on the stage at left, cowering behind his kimono sleeve under a large green temple bell as the jealous beauty Kiyohime stares at him from under a robe draped over her head. The Meiji Emperor and Empress sit at right, surrounded by ladies-in-waiting, a cloth covered table in front of them. Three beauties at lower left accompany the performance with hand drums. Handsomely detailed with rich vibrant color. An interesting subject, also in the collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
