Beauty Fleeing a Nobleman, 1847 - 1852 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty Fleeing a Nobleman, 1847 - 1852

Comments - Interesting scene of a beauty fleeing from the nobleman Ashikaga Jiro no kimi, turning away as he takes hold of her striped outer robe. She smiles playfully, but he regards her with a sober expression as he stands behind a woman kneeling at his feet, his hand placed protectively on her shoulder. The beauty hides her mouth behind her sleeve, her kimono patterned with Genji symbols and white blossoms. A woman waits in the room next door, shielding a lantern with her sleeve as she listens, eyeing the group suspiciously. A beautiful setting with graceful grasses and flowers waving outside the verandah railing and wonderful detail in the elegant mansion interior. A handsome design.
