The Lavish World of Genji-e: 19th-century Triptychs

Amid sprawling landscapes and lush interiors, fashionable figures enjoy seasonal pleasures and offer literary allusions in this collection of Genji-inspired triptychs. In the early 19th century, the “shining prince” of the 11th-century classic Tale of Genji was reimagined as the contemporary, charismatic playboy Mitsuuji in a popular serial novel. The novel was an enormous success and sparked a craze for anything Genji. Printed with lavish embellishments and vividly preserved colors, many of these triptychs are pristine - as lavish in condition as the scenes they depict.
