Comments - Handsome triptych depicting Prince Genji enjoying a pleasure boat ride in the company of a pair of beauties. He relaxes on a cushion, leaning against an armrest, holding a small fan. A porcelain kettle sits on a warmer nearby, and a small shelf holds a larger pitcher and cups. He smiles at the beauty standing in the front of the ship as she poles the craft through the water. Two young girls dressed in Chinese costumes act as attendants, one manning the oar in the stern of the boat. Small islands in the center of the lake are linked with a bridge, the shore dotted with blossoming cherry trees. A lovely view of this classic Edo era pastime, beautifully detailed.
