Why this is a

Another love affair of the young prince is depicted in a winter setting. The triptych is the joint work of two artists. The landscape, extending over three plates, was created by Hiroshige, while the figures were added by another artist, Kunisada. They have been set into the composition so as to leave the landscape an independent subject on the central print. The tension between the protagonists seems to bring them closer together, so that they are like the pine and the bamboo stretching out boughs in the symbolic gesture of eternal friendship.

History of the Object
Although in Feliks Jasieński’s collection of books, which is presently in the custody of the Cracow Museum, there are numerous auction catalogues, among which are catalogues of the Barboutau, Bing, Burty, Gillot and Hayashi collections, it is impossible to associate them with specific works of the Jasieński collection on the basis of short descriptions of individual items.

Donated by Feliks Jasieński (1861-1929) in 1920. Feliks Jasieński was a Polish collector, connoisseur, critic and music lover, and outstanding personality. His interests in art and music, as well as his personal intellectual and social qualities, brought him close to the artistic elite of Paris, the capital of art. Feliks Jasieński donated about 15,000 art objects from the Far and Middle East, Poland and other European countries to the National Museum in Cracow. Japanese art was represented by approximately 6,500 items, including paintings, sculptures, fabrics, kimonos, obi sashes, lacquerware, ceramics, enamelware, bronzes, dyeing stencils, decorative art objects, arms and armours. The widest range of 5,000 objects was provided by the most valuable and consistent group of Ukiyo-e woodblock print which were Jasienski’s first and probably strongest fascination.
