Original Nobukazu (1874 - 1944) Japanese Woodblock Print
Procession Leaving the Imperial Palace, 1895
Comments - Handsome scene of a royal procession leaving the Imperial Palace. At right, the Meiji Emperor rides in a black carriage drawn by a team of white horses, with soldiers on horseback leading the way and others following alongside and behind. Red and white paper lanterns hanging overhead add a festive air. Additional horsemen can be seen crossing the bridge over the moat at upper left. An interesting subject with wonderful architectural detail in the bridges and palace walls, with burnishing on the black carriage and the two black uniforms at lower right.
