Original Miyagawa Shuntei (1873 - 1914) Japanese Woodblock Print
January: The Shuttlecock
Series; Twelve Months of Beauties, 1898

January: The Shuttlecock - Charming image of beauties playing games at New Year's. The beauty at left holds up a decorated battledore for a traditional holiday game similar to badminton. She hurries away, being chased by a playful young woman who runs after her with a brush, trying to daub her with ink. At right, a small girl and her mother giggle with amusement as they watch the pair, a shuttlecock lying on the ground before them. In the center, a yakko-dako or man kite is tangled in the branches of a bare plum tree, a reminder of the popularity of flying kites for the New Year. A delightful scene with soft shading and attractive color in the elegant kimono, and burnishing on the black geta clogs.
