Guests Arriving for a Tea Ceremony by Nobukazu (1874 - 1944)

Original Nobukazu (1874 - 1944) Japanese Woodblock Print
Guests Arriving for a Tea Ceremony

Comments - Lovely scene of a woman and her daughter arriving for a tea ceremony. The other guests kneel quietly on the floor in the center, the first woman holding the tea bowl with both hands. The beauty on the end waves a greeting to the newcomers, and the hostess at right smiles happily at her guests. She kneels in front of a brazier holding a kettle of hot water, a bamboo dipper resting across the top. A whisk and tea caddy are arranged on the floor nearby. The home is beautifully decorated with a hanging scroll of a dragon and Mt. Fuji, and a floral arrangement on a red lacquer stand. A niche at right holds a shamisen and a western-style clock with an alarm bell. Wonderful detail and color in the clothing and interior setting. A wonderful depiction of this age-old ceremony.
