Watching a Train and Foreign Ships by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)

Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Watching a Train and Foreign Ships
Series; Thirty-six Enchanting Flowers (Enshoku Sanjurokukasen), 1881

Thirty-six Enchanting Flowers - Lovely image from an unusual Kunichika series titled "Thirty-six Enchanting Flowers," designed in 1881. Each print pairs a poem by one of the Thirty-six Immortal Poets with well-known contemporary beauties, the "enchanting flowers" of the series title, involved in daily activities. The women are shown playing music, taking a dancing lesson, greeting a visitor, or strolling outdoors. These vibrantly colored, beautifully detailed woodblocks offer a charming look at Meiji era life. Although the beauties wear traditional dress, look for signs of modernization, like Western-style cloth umbrellas, modern buildings with glass windows, European-style carpets, and even a train. An intriguing series.
