Yamashiro, Flowers of Ouchi, the Third Princess, No. 27 by Chikanobu (1838 - 1912)

Original Chikanobu (1838 - 1912) Japanese Woodblock Print
Yamashiro, Flowers of Ouchi, the Third Princess, No. 27
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, Flowers of Ouchi, the Third Princess, No. 27 - Handsome scene from the famous "Tale of Genji," showing the Third Princess, the wife of Prince Genji, in her private quarters. She stands at the edge of the verandah, peering through fine bamboo blinds at some courtiers playing kickball in the courtyard. She was supposed to stay hidden from view, but her curious kitten has wandered out on the verandah, opening the blinds long enough for the young Kashiwagi to see the princess and fall madly in love. The inset above shows the courtiers playing kickball under a willow tree. Incredibly fine line work in the bamboo blinds, and lovely embossing on the white kimono fabric. A charming image from this classic tale.

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