Snow, 1852 - Attractive scene of Prince Genji and two beauties enjoying a stroll through the snow along the banks of the water. A servant shelters the young nobleman under an umbrella, while his sword bearer kneels at right. He wears a fantastic black coat with a fierce dragon on it over a white kimono tucked into full hakama pants. The young beauty at right hurries to join the rest of the group, lifting the edge of her red chrysanthemum print robe as she walks along on tall wooden geta clogs. Pine trees frame the view of the river and the opposite shore. A handsome design, nicely detailed with embossing on the white kimono trim. Also in the collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
