The Tale of Genji. Chapter 32
Information about author
Two people are sitting on the terrace of the house, one in a dark blue kimono with a fan open in his hands, the other in a traditional montsuki haori hakama costume. In the foreground on the right, a woman and a man are cooking fish. To the left, at the entrance to the terrace, stands another man dressed in ceremonial attire, with mons in the form of crossed daikon, symbolising prosperity and steadfastness, and a fan in his right hand. A long sword is attached to his belt on the left. The terrace overlooks the sea and the mountains are visible in the distance.
In the top right corner a calligraphic inscription in a cartouche and a serial number "32". Left in the centre is the author's signature, the stamps of the censors, one of whom is the Mayor of Tahitiro, and the publisher's stamps.
