Cherry Blossoms at Azumadai
Series; Beautiful Women at Famous Places
Cherry Blossoms at Azumadai - Charming triptych of children enjoying an outing to Ueno Park to view the blossoming cherry trees, frolicking about under the falling petals. At right a young boy tugs on his mother's sleeve as he hops on one foot, catching her by surprise as she turns to see what is going on. Three girls race across the temple grounds at left, smiling and waving their hands. Other visitors enjoy a picnic under the trees at right, some pausing to watch the children playing. A beautifully drawn image with lovely soft color and detail in the kimono fabrics.
