Ono no Komachi : Praying for Rain, ca. 1791

Chōbunsai Eishi Japanese
In this sophisticated image of beauties enjoying an outing, the original content of the theme is intentionally obscured. Only the rain and the small boat in the distance refer to the Kabuki play Komachi Praying for Rain. The lushness of the summer scene and the fresh beauty of the women are subtly enhanced by the avoidance of colour in the monochrome print.
Throughout his career, Chōbunsai Eishi, son of a samurai family, focused exclusively on the subject of elegant women.
