The Imperial Spring Poetry Contest, 1879 by Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892)

Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Imperial Spring Poetry Contest, 1879

Comments - Charming Yoshitoshi triptych depicting the Meiji Empress and her ladies-in-waiting enjoying the spring poetry writing contest at the Imperial Palace. Seated at low writing desks around the room, the woman take brush and poem slip in hand as they take turns composing verses. The empress sits at left wearing a purple outer robe and an ornate headdress, a folding fan in her hand. Men in military uniforms are gathered around cloth covered tables at the back of the room, with poem slips spread out before them. Wonderful detail in the elegant setting and clothing, including metallic pigment that has oxidized to a dark tone on the white kimono collars and burnishing on the black backs of the chairs across the top. An attractive scene from courtly life during the Meiji era.

Artist - Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892)
