Further Info:
No:8 from the One Hundred Poems by One Hundred Poets series (Hyakunin Isshu no Isshu), publisher Ebine (?). Kisen Hoshi, a Heian-period Buddhist monk and poet of whom little is known except that he lived near Mount Uji in present-day Hyƶgo Prefecture. He is shown seated at the edge of his hut overlooking a nearby lake and a mountain, while a servant sweeps up fallen leaves. At the top of the print is Kisen's poem: `My hut is to the capital's southeast and thus I live. But people call it Uji, hill of one weary of the world, I hear`. (translation by Joshua S. Mostow). Excellant impression and colours, trimmed with light album-backing and tape bottom corners.
