Original Nobukazu (1874 - 1944) Japanese Woodblock Print
Women's Concert, 1889
Comments - Lovely triptych depicting a group of beauties playing music and enjoying a spring day on a verandah overlooking a beautiful, traditional garden. In the center, a woman dances gracefully as musicians accompany her on a variety of instruments, including a flute, a biwa or Japanese lute, and a kokyo, an instrument similar to a shamisen but played upright with a bow. At right, a young girl carries in a tray of refreshments for the group. A charming and colorful scene with a beautiful setting.
