Scenery of the Four Seasons: Spring, 1861 by Kunisada II (1823 - 1880)

Original Kunisada II (1823 - 1880) Japanese Woodblock Print
Scenery of the Four Seasons: Spring, 1861

Comments - Lovely triptych of Prince Genji and two beauties playing music on a spring evening. At left, the young nobleman sits on the porch, smiling slyly as he plays a flute, watching the women inside out of the corners of his eyes. In the center, a woman plays a biwa or Japanese lute, while her companion plucks a koto. The room opens onto a garden with a large pond framed by blossoming cherry trees. At right, women can be seen in another part of the mansion through a translucent panel with a pale green cast. A beautiful design, detailed with embossing on the white kimono collars and Genji's white robe, and burnishing on the black lining of his coat. The first time we've offered this design, also in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
