Bridal Procession of a Tokugawa Princess, 1889 by Kunisada III (1848 - 1920)

Original Kunisada III (1848 - 1920) Japanese Woodblock Print
Bridal Procession of a Tokugawa Princess, 1889

Comments - Terrific scene of a bridal procession making its way towards the home of the groom for the wedding ceremony. The bride rides in an enclosed palanquin featuring the three hollyhock leaf crest of the Tokugawa clan, peering shyly out the window with her sleeve held to her chin. Samurai in matching attire lead the way, with a group of ladies in waiting following behind, each with her hair wrapped with a cloth to protect it from dust. Retainers kneel respectfully on either side of the grand entrance gate to the daimyo's palace. A great design with wonderful detail. The first time we've seen this subject.
