Tokaido gojusan tsui


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Dressed in elaborate cotton kimonos, two girls appear a bit over-dressed for the task at hand. Beneath their tie-dyed head coverings, they each sport hairstyles of the highest urban fashion. These are elegant urban women costumed to play the roles of tea plantation workers in the famed Fuchu region. Hiroshige is presenting his urban patrons with a fantasy that appeals both to their sense of fashion and to their love of fine tea.
Provenance C. Robert Snell, Oriental Arts & Antiques, Timonium, Maryland; purchased by Justine Lewis Keidel, Owings Mills, Maryland, after 1971; given to Walters Art Museum, 1991.
Inscriptions [Signature] Hiroshige ga
Credit Gift of Justine Lewis Keidel, 1991
