More about this print: This picture illustrates a verse by the celebrated haiku master Takarai Kikaku (1661-1707): "Bright moon - across the tatami mats shadows of pine branches" (printed October 1885). Stevenson* points out that, based on the hairstyle, the round uchiwa fan, and several other style elements, this design probably is a homage to Utamaro (1754-1806)
Pictures: Pictures are taken outdoor, in the shade, to reflect true colors, without any enhancements of any kind. The last picture is taken indoor, with a light behind the print, to reveal the exact paper grain, holes if any, or other possible flaws.
