Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauties and Morning Glories
Comments - Charming scene of beauties relaxing on a porch overlooking a garden filled with oversize morning glories. At right, a young woman carries a tray with a teapot and cups, while the beauty behind her pauses behind a sheer reed blind to adjust a hairpin as she chats with her companion. A couple dragonflies flutter overhead and a breeze blows a poem slip hanging from an ornament suspended from the eaves. The first time we've offered this lovely Kunichika design.
