Comments - Charming scene of two beauties in their private quarters, sitting with their legs extended under a kotatsu, a low table with a brazier placed beneath it, covered with a heavy quilt to keep in the warmth. The young woman at left studies a letter, a battledore and two shuttlecocks resting atop the kotatsu between them. Her companion looks up, hold three cards or books in her hand, her cheeks gently flushed with soft pink. The folding screen behind them features a blossoming plum tree against a shimmering metallic gold ground. A beautiful design with lovely color and fine detail. This reprint beautifully captures the color and spirit of Yumeji's original work.
