Original Nobukazu (1874 - 1944) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauties Enjoying Cherry Blossoms on the Banks of the Sumida River, 1890
Comments - Lovely design of beauties on a verandah enjoying a view of the cherry trees blossoming along the banks of the Sumida River. In the center, a mother holds her young child as she reaches eagerly over the verandah railing, waving at a passing pleasure boat. Three women play music at right, a hand drum accompanying a flute and shamisen. A beautiful spring scene with wonderful detail in the kimono fabrics and soft shading in the water and sky. An attractive triptych, also in the collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
