A Summer Morning, 1847 - 1852 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
A Summer Morning, 1847 - 1852

Comments - Handsome triptych depicting Mitsuuji, the Rustic or Country Genji, and a beauty on a summer morning. The beauty has just finished her bath, smiling at her companion as she dries the side of her face with her kimono sleeve. Her tie-dyed robe is loosely wrapped about her, the fabric trailing onto the floor. A fan patterned with peonies and a couple of books rest on the tatami mats lining the floor. Mitsuuji sits at right with a bowl in his hand, and a young attendant at left holds a black lacquer basin with a bowl of water in it and a toothbrush resting across the rim. The room overlooks a garden with decorative lantern next to a stone basin of water and flowering plants. An attractive design with a nicely detailed setting, also in the collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
