Prints from the Age of the Samurai - With this group of Edo era prints opening at incentivized low bids, take a moment to be transported back to the age when samurai ruled Japan. During the Tokugawa Shogunate, Japan enjoyed a period of relative peace and prosperity for more than 250 years. Woodblock prints captured scenes from daily life, warriors and battles, the beauties of the Yoshiwara pleasure district, kabuki, and travelers along the Tokaido and Kisokaido roads. Watch for Age of the Samurai prints each week at Fuji Arts.

Okin at the Pine of Success, 1863 - Interesting portrait of the beauty Okin standing in a pleasure boat, looking up at the full moon, a roll of tissues in her hand. Her kimono is bordered with small bats at the hem, worn over a red under robe and tied with a brocade obi. The title refers to a famous tree, the Pine of Success, along the Sumida River, here seen only as a shadow of a few branches across the top of the moon. An attractive design from a rarely seen beauty series, nicely detailed.
