The Syllable Yo: Meeting a Former Lover Now Married to Another Man, circa 1770 - 1773
Series; Tales of Ise in Fashionable Brocade Prints (Furyu nishiki-e Ise monogatari)

Tales of Ise in Fashionable Brocade Prints - Charming design from Shunsho's circa 1770 - 1773 series illustrating the famous "Tales of Ise," the story of a nobleman's life from youth to old age and his romantic encounters along the way. Loosely connected episodes are told through waka poems and narrative explanations. These attractive scenes feature delicate line work and nicely detailed settings, with a verse in a cloud across the top of the page. Written in the tenth century, the "Tales of Ise" is considered one of the most important Japanese literary works. A nice choice for a collector interested in early Edo prints or classic Japanese literature.
