The Meiji period (1868-1912) was a time of transition from traditional Japanese culture to rapid modernization. Ronin Gallery is pleased to present a collection of 30 triptychs that portray the fashions, pastimes, and customs of women during this era. Whether boating on riverbanks, conversing on terraces, strolling through gardens, or reading, writing and painting, Meiji women lived a "seemingly idyllic life." Beautifully designed and subtly colored, many of the prints in this collection are enhanced with silver, lacquer, and embossing.
