Moon Viewing Banquet at Yoshino Imperial Palace, 1888 by Chikanobu (1838 - 1912)

Original Chikanobu (1838 - 1912) Japanese Woodblock Print
Moon Viewing Banquet at Yoshino Imperial Palace, 1888

Comments - Fantastic triptych of a moon viewing banquet at the Imperial Palace in Yoshino of the exiled 14th century Emperor Go-Daigo. Forced out of Kyoto by the shogun Ashikaga Takeuji, Go-Daigo set up a southern court in the mountainous area of Yoshino, where he kept up many palace traditions, such as this moon viewing party. Here, the lady Onshaku no tsubone stands holding a broken saucer, which she compares to the shape of the moon rising above the pine trees. The emperor sits on a platform at right, his face concealed behind a hanging bamboo blind. A beautiful image of a popular court entertainment, with fantastic detail in the sumptuous fabrics and interior details, and fine embossing in the white kimono and emperor's robe. Would make a terrific framed presentation.

Artist - Chikanobu (1838 - 1912)
Image Size - 28 1/4" x 14 1/4" + margins as shown
Condition - With excellent color and detail. Three separate panels. Some minor wrinkling. Some light soiling . Please see photos for details. Very nice overall.
