"Zeshin has effectively conveyed to the print medium the boldness of design
that was characteristic of his lacquerware, positioning the birds diagonally
across the upper triangle of the composition." ('The New Wave')
- The first owner of this particular copy of the print had acquired it in Japan during a world tour in the year 1900. -
