Comments - Charming kakemono or vertical diptych of the beauty Chiyo of Kaga Province going to the well to fetch water, only to find that morning glories have grown over the well bucket lying on the ground. She smiles as she looks down with a pail in her other hand and a towel draped over one shoulder. The verse above reads:
The morning glories
Have taken my well bucket–
I’ll borrow water.
An attractive design.
