Original Kunisada II (1823 - 1880) Japanese Woodblock Print
Prince Genji Enjoying the Evening Cool, 1865
Comments - Handsome scene of Prince Genji viewing fireworks from a pleasure boat. The young nobleman holds a glass goblet of sake as he looks over his shoulder, smiling as an explosion of red sparks lights up the night sky. A large paper lantern hangs overhead, and the river beyond is crowded with boats, including a large pleasure boat decorated with red paper lanterns. An attractive summer subject, with faint embossing in the ribs of the lantern overhead and bokashi shading in the water and sky.
