The Shining Prince Arranging Flowers, 1862 by Kunisada II (1829 - 1874)

Original Kunisada II (1829 - 1874) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Shining Prince Arranging Flowers, 1862

Comments - Attractive scene of Prince Genji and beauties arranging flowers in an elegant interior. At lower right, the nobleman grins as he looks up, a stem covered with yellow flowers in his hand. The beauty behind him holds a vase filled with irises. The standing woman at left gestures with her finger as she chats with Genji, while a matron kneeling beside her places a blossoming cherry branch in a container. The room opens onto a view of a lake and garden dotting with flowering cherry trees. Includes embossing on the white kimono collars and a faint embossed pattern on Genji's light yellow kimono. A lovely image and a nice subject for a collector interested in ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging.
