The Tale of Genji. Chapter 18
Information about author
The print shows Prince Genji in a dark blue kimono. He extends his left arm towards Lady Akashi, Genji's beloved, who is sitting on the floor with his back to him. The woman is dressed in a cream kimono with large rosettes, her hair on her head gathered into a hairdo. Her hands are pressed to her chest, her head is bashfully tilted forward. The scene takes place in a room with a koto musical instrument, by the light of a lantern.
In the top right corner a calligraphic inscription in a cartouche and a serial number "18". Bottom left author's signature, censors' and publisher's stamps.
