Really wonderful walk at River Park and visit to the Lady Lever Art Gallery today!
At the park they have covered a landfill with a geomembrane allowing plants and wildlife to grow over it, it was a really interesting concept and a great way to try and undo some of what we've done to nature. I always feel so much better mentally as well when I go out for a walk in the park or a little stroll with some fresh air and some nice scenery 🌳
The art gallery has an exhibition at the moment called 'Edo Pop' which was fantastic as I have always loved Japanese art and history, my favourite book is Memoirs of a Geisha ☺️ Outfit: bag is from @accessorize, denim jacket is actually my mum's, and the dress is from @oxfamgb

In the rubbish pile
mixed with ordure
the pine cricket's
voice still gives
a clear serene sound

More glamour from the floating world. This is part of a three-panel #woodblock print made in 1854 by Utagawa Kunisada. It shows three famous courtesans or #oiran in the main street of the #Yoshiwara district in #Edo. They have come out to parade in cherry blossom season, loaded down with all their finery. This lady wears a fabulous kimono decorated with a huge carp, symbol of good luck. Although it was illegal to produce portraits of named courtesans at this date, Utagawa has printed her name at upper right. I don't read Japanese but, according to the label, she should be Yatsumuraski of the Kimpiero House. This was also part of the #EdoPop show at the Lady Lever in Liverpool #ukiyoe #floatingworld #japan #kimonos #japanesefashion #cherryblossomseason #ladyleverartgallery (4 July 2017)

Theatregoers in 19th-century #Japan lapped up anything to do with their favourite actors. Many theatre-related prints showed the actors in favourite roles, but there was also a huge market for more unusual kinds of images, like this one from 1854, by Utagawa Kunisada. It's a detail from a woodblock print showing three #Kabuki actors on a bridge in the snow, wrapped up against the cold. Snowflakes spangle the background. I loved this actor's long-suffering grimace up towards the sky. Essentially, it's 19th-century fanart, currently on view in the Edo Pop show at the Lady Lever Art Gallery #ukiyoe #edo #kabukiactor #utagawakunisada #theatre #edopop #ladyleverartgallery (4 August 2017)

A trip to #Liverpool today, as part of which I saw the wonderful #EdoPop exhibition at the Lady Lever Art Gallery. Prepare yourselves for a lot of ukiyo-e coming through during the next few days. To start, here's a stunning #woodblock from about 1830, printed in the fashionable new colour Prussian Blue, which had only become available in Japan in 1828. Hokusai used the same blue for some of his Mount Fuji series. In this composition by Kikukawa Eizan, a senior courtesan shows off her fabulously-patterned kimono during a passeggiata, accompanied by two of her assistants #ladyleverartgallery #kikukawaeizan #prussianblue #japanesecostume #woodblockprint #edo (4 August 2017)

Gorgeous domed ceiling in Port Sunlight's utterly stunning Lady Lever Art Gallery. Beautiful glass framed by perfect columns in the greco-roman style. This is just a thin slice. Highly recommend it for anyone interested in art and beauty
