Lot Essay

This scene probably depicts the artist and his family departing Toshogu Shrine, Ueno Park, Tokyo, a site close to their home. A portrait of the artist painted by Julian Exter, a fellow student in Germany under Gabriel Max at the Munich Academy in the mid 1880s, bears a striking resemblance to the male figure in this painting, and the two children appear to be the age of Harada's in 1889. Admired for highly realistic and romantic works, this painting by Harada is a more intimate portrayal of a family outing.
