Women's Etiquette

Comments - Lovely scene of traditional upper-class women's activities, with a tea ceremony taking place at right. The guests sit quietly as the hostess kneels beside a container of water on a brazier, carefully stirring the tea in a bowl with a spoon. A niche behind them holds a hanging scroll of a setting sun and pine tree above a floral arrangement in a basket on a red lacquer stand. At left, a beauty has just finished painting a design on a folding fan, holding it out for her companion to examine. She sits at a low table covered with sheets of paper, an ink stone, and containers of brushes, pigment, and water. A young girl holds a stack of books while another smiles happily as she fans herself. Beautiful detail in the elegant fabrics and household furnishings, with burnishing on the black lacquer chest and plant stand. An attractive design.
