Product description

Reproduction of a print kept in the Georges-Labit museum. A couple and their child in the snow. Late Edo period print (1603-1868), woodcut by Utagawa Kunisada II (1823-1880). This print illustrates an episode from the Tale of Genji, a masterpiece of Japanese literature. The monogatari Genji or Tale of Genji was written in the early 11th century by Murasaki Shikibu. It tells the story of Prince Hikaru Genji's turbulent love and political adventures in the refined atmosphere of the imperial court of Heian (Kyoto). He has inspired many artists in the art of printmaking (Fine Art Giclee Print. Pigment inks resistant to solarisation).
