The Akashi Bathhouse, 1847 - 1852 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Akashi Bathhouse, 1847 - 1852

Comments - Fantastic, six-panel illustration of the Akashi Bathhouse showing both the upper and lower stories. At upper right, a woman peers over the edge of a railing around an opening above a well, a pail suspended from a rope over a pulley overhead. In top center, a beauty carries a fine lacquer tray covered with a red brocade cloth, a young girl following behind her with a lacquer basin. At upper left, a beauty in an informal blue and white cotton robe patterned with Genji symbols and waterwheels fans herself, steam rising from a deep bath in the room behind her. Below, Prince Genji stands beside the well, smiling as he looks up, while an attendant holds his sword as she opens the door at left. Wonderful detail in the architectural setting and furnishings, the view framed by a blossoming cherry tree at right. Includes burnishing in the black kimono. An incredible design, rare to find complete, in fine condition. A great subject for a collector.
