Original Sadahide (1807 - 1873) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauties in the Kitchen, 1847 - 1852
Comments - Charming scene of beauties going about tasks in the kitchen. In the center, a woman pours the contents of a large wooden pail into a smaller tub, her sleeves tied out of the way with a red sash. At upper right, another beauty places holds a kettle with one hand and an interesting object with a handle in the other as she leans over a brazier with glowing red coats. At left, a companion smiles happily as she watches. Behind her a blossoming cherry tree frames the deep blue evening sky. An attractive scene from everyday life in Edo.
