Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Prince Mitsuuji, 1852

Comments - Handsome scene from the story "A False Murasaki's Country Genji," a parody of the beloved "Tale of Genji" which recounts the adventures of Mitsuuji, the Country Genji. The young prince stands in the garden beside a stone lantern beneath a pine tree covered with wisteria vines and blossoms, smiling and gesturing with his fan. His kimono is shaded from soft pink to red and bordered with clematis blossoms and Genji symbols, tucked into striped pants. A beauty sits at the top of the steps, her kimono sleeve held shyly to her mouth. A charming design with a lovely setting.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)
