Foreigners Enjoying a Party (Gaikokujin yūkyō no zu)

Utagawa Yoshitora Japanese

Not on view

Delicacies such as grapes, in ceramic dishes, and bottles of sake with tiny cups are strategically placed on the large lacquer table for easy reach by revelers. Some of the Western men enjoy their drinks and snacks, while another, accompanied by a Chinese man, dances to music performed by a group of Japanese women. Two female entertainers watch with curiosity, while two Western women quietly converse.
