By Request, a Parody of Komachi Praying for Rain  by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
By Request, a Parody of Komachi Praying for Rain
Series; Seven Komachi

By Request, a Parody of Komachi Praying for Rain - Lovely design of a beauty caught during a sudden rain shower, a parody of a famous incident in the life of the Heian era poet Ono no Komachi, when she prayed for rain and saved the country from drought. She hurriedly puts up her umbrella as she slips one foot into her tall wooden geta sandal, the other leg still curled up beside her. She wears a beautiful kimono bordered with a pattern of morning glories climbing a trellis. A charming subject, attractively colored and shaded. Printed with a light tan background to simulate an aged appearance.

Image Size - 14 1/4" x 9 5/8" + margins as shown
