Poetry Contest by Gyosui (1868 - 1935)

Original Gyosui (1868 - 1935) Japanese Woodblock Print
Poetry Contest

Comments - Lovely image of upper-class women taking part in a poetry composing contest. Two of the beauties sit at low writing tables, with a brush and poem slip in hand. Others watch them with eager smiles, waiting to hear the verses they have written. In the center, a woman stands near the edge of the verandah as another beauty approaches. The room opens out onto a handsome view of a garden with a lake, with blossoming plum trees framing the view and a line of birds flying through the sky. Nice color and detail in the elegant interior and furnishings and the handsome kimono and obi, including embossing on the white kimono trim. A charming subject.
