A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

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.

Visiting, 1843 - 1847 - Charming portrait of a beauty standing next to a palanquin as she pays a visit. She smiles as she looks up, one hand holding the edge of her robes while the other rests atop the palanquin roof. Her black kimono is bordered with pheasant's eyes, a popular winter flower, which also appears on the layers of light blue trim. A band of embossed cherry blossoms runs across the top beneath a border of clouds. An attractive design from a series pairing contemporary beauties with scenes from the life of the famous Heian era poetess Ono no Komachi.
