Comments - Lovely court scene of Heian era beauties at the Imperial Palace enjoying poems on a snowy day. At left, a woman raises a blind that looks out onto a snow-covered garden with a pond. At lower right, a beauty sits at a low table writing a verse on a sheet of paper. Shelves at right hold stacks of scrolls, books, and a lacquer box. Beautiful color and detail in the elegant fabrics and household furnishings.
