Sunset Glow of the Lamp  by Harunobu (1724 - 1770)

Harunobu (1724 - 1770) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Sunset Glow of the Lamp
Series; Eight Views of the Parlor

Eight Views of the Parlor - In Japan, the scenic "Eight Views of Omi" was a popular subject for woodblock print artists, featuring specific landscapes and weather conditions in Omi Province. Some artists adapted the theme of "Eight Views" using different locations such as Kanazawa or Edo. Harunobu went a step further with his witty parody titled "Eight Views of the Parlor," using scenes from everyday life in place of the famous sites. He likens the sound of a boiling teakettle to a night rain, and a towel on a rack blowing in the evening breeze to the billowing of a sail. These attractive designs feature Harunobu's lovely delicate line work and beautifully detailed settings. A great Edo era series by this ukiyo-e master.

Sunset Glow of the Lamp - Charming design of a woman in a black kimono patterned with stalks of rice absorbed in reading a letter. Her young maid lights an oil lamp nearby as dusk falls. The verandah opens onto a view of a narrow stream, with colorful maple leaves framing the scene. A lovely Harunobu reprint from this notable series likening the famous "Eight Views of Omi" with scenes from daily life. Lovely color and fine line work.
