Songs of the Four Seasons: Summer, 1853 by Kuniteru (active circa 1820 - 1860)

Original Kuniteru (active circa 1820 - 1860) Japanese Woodblock Print
Songs of the Four Seasons: Summer, 1853

Comments - Handsome scene of Prince Genji and his companions enjoying a summer evening in a garden. He relaxes on the step in the center, grinning happily as a young girl pours water into a lacquer basin for him to wash his hand in, a towel hanging on a rack nearby. At right, a beauty in a red kimono patterned with folding fans gestures at the oversize morning glories on a trellis, with hydrangea blossoms below. At left, a young woman carries out a tobacco set as a small dog plays at the hem of her robe. Wonderful detail in the elegant palace setting and household furnishings. Includes embossing on the white kimono trim, and subtle burnished patterns on Genji's violet robe and on the dark blue-green kimono of the kneeling woman at left. A lovely design.

Image Size - 14 3/8" x 28 3/4"
