Comments - Terrific scene from the famous Tale of Genji showing the young Prince Genji enjoying an evening of entertainment at a palace. He sits on a cushion at left, leaning against a lacquer armrest as an attendant pours sake into his cup. Two shirabyoshi dancers perform on the stage before him, accompanied by several musicians playing hand drum, flute, and shamisen. Wonderful detail in the interior setting and elegant fabrics, including faint embossing on Genji's white robe. A lovely scene of courtly life, also in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
