Second National Industrial Exposition, 1881 by Chikanobu (1838 - 1912)

Original Chikanobu (1838 - 1912) Japanese Woodblock Print
Second National Industrial Exposition, 1881

Comments - Terrific illustration of the Second National Industrial Exposition held in 1881 in Ueno Park. The enormous Shojo Fountain dominates the scene, with water splashing from an urn on the backs of colorful figures into a large scalloped basin. Bright koi fish swim and leap in the rippling water below as beauties in traditional dress and men in Western attire and military uniforms stroll about the grounds. The elegant brick Fine Arts Museum building fills the background at right, framed by blossoming cherry trees. An intriguing look at this historic event, with lively color and charming details.
