Yamashiro, Snow at the Imperial Palace, Lady Sei Shonagon, No. 38  by Chikanobu (1838 - 1912)

Original Chikanobu (1838 - 1912) Japanese Woodblock Print
Yamashiro, Snow at the Imperial Palace, Lady Sei Shonagon, No. 38
Series; Snow, Moon, Flowers

Collection Note from Bill:  I was excited to purchase this beautiful print in Japan recently as part of a fine, pristine Chikanobu collection sourced from a Japanese collector in the countryside. The prints are all beautifully printed, retain 100% of their original color, are not backed, and were stored in perfect condition. They’re a nice opportunity to collect flawless prints from Chikanobu’s popular "Snow, Moon, Flowers" series.

Yamashiro, Snow at the Imperial Palace, Lady Sei Shonagon, No. 38 - Lovely portrait of the poet Sei Shonagon at the Imperial Palace. The well-known tenth-century poet was invited to the royal court by Empress Teishi, who appreciated her wit and clever observations. She is shown lifting the fine bamboo blinds enclosing the verandah for a closer view of the plum blossoms. She wears a beautiful formal kimono, her long hair flowing down over her back. The inset above features a writing desk holding a scroll with a poem about snow. A beautiful Chikanobu design.

Image Size - 12 3/4" x 8 3/4" + margins as shown
