Hashimoto Chikanobu
[1838-1912]

A characteristically stately Meiji Period interior depicting a woman at lunch from the series “Sketches of Women’s Ritual Ceremonies”, as well as a Tokonoma in the background exhibiting the colossal branches and delicate blossoms of the Sakura [Cherry Tree]. This image is the right most panel of a well known Chikanobu triptych. Though most likely not a true Bonsai the splendor of this image favored its inclusion in our collection.
