A scene from the Stories of Prince Genjii. The Prince enjoying early morning on a verandah by the river. Wearing an informal butterfly print kimono, he smiles up at the baby girl carried by the beauty at right. The child waves a tiny fan as she perches on the beauty's shoulder, the woman beaming back at the nobleman. At Genji's side, a young girl offers him a tray with a bowl of water and a toothbrush, while another woman at left lowers a pail into the swiftly flowing water below. Excellent impression and colours, in very good condition. Three seperate sheets with old album backing.
