Original Kuniteru (active circa 1820 - 1860) Japanese Woodblock Print
Flowers of Akashi, 1853

Comments - Handsome scene of Prince Genji and his companions in an elegant mansion in Akashi. At left, a beauty giggles into her sleeve as she holds a telescope. The young nobleman smiles down at the girl kneeling at his side, who points excitedly to the instrument. At right, a beauty is busy arranging flowers, holding a blossoming branch in her hand, additional branches and a pair of scissors resting on a tray nearby with the vase at far right. The rooms overlook a view of the sea framed by blossoming cherry trees. Along the shore in the distance at far left, a boatman attacks an octopus with an oar and a diving woman has fallen over backwards onto the sand, an amusing detail. A lovely scene with wonderful detail in the attractive setting and fabrics.
