Genji and Beauties Watching Cormorant Fishermen - Handsome illustration from the famous "Tale of Genji" of the young nobleman and beauties watching cormorant fishermen at night. Holding a bow in his hand, Genji looks up with a grin as he stands on the shore, the beauty at left gesturing towards the water. At right, a woman lifts a flaming torch. An attractively colored and detailed triptych, with soft shading in the water and clouds, and a yellow border decorated with confetti-like shapes.
