Pleasure/Music, 1854 - Beautiful scene of Prince Genji sitting on a verandah, relaxing and enjoying the music provided by three beauties. The woman in the center plays a kokyu, an instrument similar to a shamisen but played upright with a bow. At right one beauty plays the flute while another strums a biwa or Japanese lute. The nobleman sits before a small table laden with refreshments, gesturing with his hand to a shy beauty peeking around the corner of the doorway. Red and white paper lanterns hang overhead, adding a festive air, while blossoming cherry trees fill the background. A lovely image with wonderful detail in the elegant kimono fabrics and delicate embossing on the white cherry blossoms and kimono collars.
