Beautiful print from the series Fifty-four Modern Feelings - based on the 1828 novel "A False Murasaki's Country Genji," a parody of the famous "Tale of Genji." Chapter 13. "Akashi". Kunichika has illustrated the chapters of the story with updated, modern beauties dressed in the contemporary fashions of the day.
