Young Nobleman, 1896 - Handsome scene from a rare Gekko series illustrating the 10th century "Yamato Monogatari," a collection of stories and poetry from the Heian era. Here, a young nobleman stands behind a cloth privacy panel beneath a blossoming cherry trees, brushing his hand across his face as petals drift down around him. The cloth separates the youth from two beauties who are strolling along in the distance at left. An attractive design with an effective use of color.
