Women Eating and Drinking, c.1726 Japan

Women Eating and Drinking, c.1726

From Japanese artist Sukenobu Nishikawa (1671-1751), a page from a book, using woodblock printing from c.1716-1736.

“It shows three richly dressed women or girls eating and drinking, probably celebrating Hina Matsuri (Girl’s day) with a doll ceremony, showing dolls sitting at a table in the background.”
