Night Rain at Karasaki, 1847 - 1852 - Handsome scene of a nobleman and Prince Genji paying a visit to a beauty on a rainy night. She looks eagerly out the window as they arrive, smiling happily. The nobleman stands next to the garden gate, frowning unhappily as he looks back at his younger companion. The prince grins shyly with his head down, an umbrella in one hand and a folding fan in the other. Rain falls steadily over the dark night sky. An attractive design with fine bokashi shading and a nice atmospheric setting.
