Snow Scene captures three women playfully battling beneath the trees on freshly fallen snow. A hint of night sky peeks out from the top of the scene, with the rest awash in fat flakes of a white storm. We catch them at peak snow day glee: one dodging clusters of frozen flurries while another winds up for an encore. The women bend and twirl around waves of brightly patterned fabric, a gorgeous choreography of chaos and joy.
While modern critics were late to recognize Kunisada’s significance, he was enormously popular amongst his contemporaries. In fact, he and his work were so widely admired that in order to help his fellow artist and friend Hiroshige promote his series The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tōkaidō, Kunisada produced his own version with one of his bijin-ga ladies posed in the foreground of each of Hiroshige’s landscapes.
