Mitsuuji Looks in from the Verandah, 1847 - 1852 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Mitsuuji Looks in from the Verandah, 1847 - 1852

Comments - Charming scene from the story "A False Murasaki's Country Genji," a parody of the beloved "Tale of Genji" which recounts the adventures of Mitsuuji (the Country Genji). Here Mitsuuji peers in through an open window as he sits on the verandah, smiling at the princess inside. She smiles back sweetly, shyly holding her sleeve to her chin as she sits atop a cushion, one hand resting on the white fur top of a black lacquer armrest. Through the doorway, the young girl serving as Mitsuuji's page, holding his sword upright, looks out over the blossoming cherry trees at the figures strolling along the pathways between rice fields. Lovely detail in the architectural setting and furnishings, including embossing on the white fur. Only the second time we've offered this attractive design.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)
Image Size - 14 1/4" x 29 7/8"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Three separate panels. A couple small holes, repaired. Slight toning and soiling, a few creases. Please see photos for details.
