Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Mitsuuji Entertaining Guests on a Verandah, 1857
Comments - Handsome scene Mitsuuji, the Country Genji, entertaining guests on a verandah. He sits on a cushion at right, smiling happily as two beauties perform a dance in the center, gracefully waving their fans. Two women playing the koto and shamisen accompany them. At right, a low lacquer table holds blue and white porcelain dishes of rice cakes and delicacies. The verandah overlooks a pond bordered with blooming irises, and ornate tasseled lanterns hang overhead. Beautiful detail in the elegant setting and kimono fabrics.
