Description

Flower viewing is a long-standing Japanese tradition, becoming a ritual activity for many people. The snowy, five-petaled blossoms of the plum, or ume, are particularly radiant in a clear nighttime sky, emanating an ethereal glow. The plum blossoms from which this design is adapted are part of a woodblock print or brocade picture by Suzuki Harunobu (Japanese, 17251770), the master of the medium.

Art History

So enamored of flower-viewing are the Japanese that they have virtually ritualized it as an activity. One Japanese poet said, On a spring night when the moon shines through a blossoming plum tree growing by the eaves, the moonbeams themselves seem filled with perfume.
