Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Prince Genji on a Summer Evening, 1862

Comments - Charming scene of Prince Genji and two attendants walking across a stream on large square stone stepping stones. The stones lead from one side of a mansion to another, with a stone embankment along the water's edge zigzagging across the scene. The nobleman stands at left with a rather petulant expression, wearing a summer kimono and holding a fan. His page crouches on a stone in the center, holding his sword upright and looking expectantly at the beauty who follows carrying a cushion against her shoulder. Glass lanterns decorated with tassels hang over head against the night sky. An interesting composition with wonderful detail in the setting. Includes embossing on the beauty's white kimono collar and trim.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)
