Original Chikanobu (1838 - 1912) Japanese Woodblock Print
Nobles at the Theater, 1887
Comments - Interesting scene of the Meiji Emperor and Empress and members of the court at a theater performance. The royal couple sits on ornate chairs behind a cloth-covered table, while the ladies-in-waiting sit on plush red chairs trimmed with fringe. The women all wear the latest Western fashions, including dresses with full skirts and bustles, and hats trimmed with flowers and feathers. Nice detail in the setting.
