Sagami Jiro and Asahina, 1843 - 1846

Comments - Intriguing scene of the samurai Sagami Jiro kneeling on the hem of a beauty's kimono, scowling angrily as he flings one sleeve up beside his head. The beauty looks down with a slight smile as she tries to pull her kimono free. At right, Asashina glares at his companions as he shields a lantern beneath his sleeve. He wears a black kamishimo with a design of egrets in flight, the long pants trailing beneath his feet. The verandah overlooks a garden with a pond, with a blossoming cherry tree framing the evening sky. A great design with expressive figures and an attractive setting.
