Cherry Blossoms at Night in the Garden of Returning Geese, 1854 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Cherry Blossoms at Night in the Garden of Returning Geese, 1854

Comments - Terrific scene of Prince Genji entertaining a beauty on a spring night. He leans over a red robe draped over a walkway railing, smiling dreamily as the beauty looks back over her shoulder at him. At right, a woman carries an exotic pineapple on an offering tray, her colorful chrysanthemum-patterned robe trailing on the floor behind her. She follows several other women carrying offerings around the deck at the edge of the home. A full moon glows high above a river flowing under the walkway, surrounded by delicate pink and white cherry blossoms, a few geese descending for the night seen in silhouette in the evening sky. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts has this image in its collection. A lovely subject, nicely detailed with faint embossing on the white kimono trim.
