Genji: Five Festivals in Edo Purple, 1858

Comments - Charming scene of Prince Genji and his companions enjoying an evening outing to view the blossoming cherry trees. At left, women wearing white vests over their kimono drink sake and relax on a mat spread beneath the trees, a black lacquer box filled with food beside them. At right, Genji smiles as he paused to watch the women, the beauty at his side holding a lantern and a young girl carrying his sword. Pale pink and white blossoms frame the deep blue night sky above a pond and garden with stone lanterns. Includes delicate cloth embossing on the white vests. A nicely detailed design.
