Choki (active circa 1785 - 1805) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Young Lovers Parting
Comments - Moving image of a pair of young lovers at their parting. The beauty presses her head against her lover's chest, anxiously wringing a cloth in her hands. The man wipes a tear from his eye, his face an expression of sorrow. A pipe and tobacco pouch lay abandoned on the floor between them. The artist beautifully captures the distress of the couple in this lovely, expressive design.
