Information about author
The room depicted in the engraving is divided by a screen. On one side on the left, Great Minister Genji sits on the tatami, surrounded by an elderly woman and his wife Murasaki. On the other side of the screen, two maids and a man listen and peek at what is being done in the other part of the room. Everyone is dressed in national dress. The screens and walls are artistically decorated.
In the top right corner a calligraphic inscription in a cartouche and a serial number "28". Underneath is the author's signature, the stamps of the censors. In the bottom right are the publisher's stamps.
