Impression Very Fine. Skillful "bokashi" shading to dresser and table; light "gauffrage" (embossing) to bird and branch; highly detailed carving.
Condition Excellent. Strong colors.
(No flaws noted. Two folds typical of all "kuchi-e".)
Reference/Illus See Article #10: "Kuchi-e," or Literary Magazine Frontispieces.
Comments This beauty turns her head--distracted from her reading by the singing of a nightingale whose sihouette is seen upon her shoji screen.
