Original Kuniteru II (1829 - 1874) Japanese Woodblock Print
Prosperous Bankokutei at Tsukiji, 1869
Comments - Charming image of beauties in the garden of the prosperous Bankokutei, admiring the blossoming cherry trees around a large pond. In the center, a young girl smiles at her companions over her shoulder as she points out the flowers. At right and center, guests can be seen relaxing in rooms opening onto the garden, while others stroll about the grounds. An attractive spring scene.
