Earth, 1851 - Charming scene of Prince Genji looking out a window with slightly mischievous smile from beneath a curtain of beads. His kimono is patterned with Genji symbols and bordered with paulownia leaves and blossoms. Interestingly, a screen at right features a foreign woman playing a flute, wearing a full-skirted dress and a large hat topped with flowers and feathers. Wonderful detail in the setting.
