Prince Genji on a Summer Evening, 1862 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Prince Genji on a Summer Evening, 1862

Comments - Charming scene of Prince Genji and two attendants walking across a stream on large square stone stepping stones. The stones lead from one side of a mansion to another, with a stone embankment along the water's edge zigzagging across the scene. The nobleman stands at left with a rather petulant expression, wearing a summer kimono and holding a fan. His page crouches on a stone in the center, holding his sword upright and looking expectantly at the beauty who follows carrying a cushion against her shoulder. Glass lanterns decorated with tassels hang over head against the night sky. An interesting composition that's seldom seen.
