絵師: Okamoto Ryusei
作品名: Preparing for Festival - First Love # 4
"Yoimiya no Hi" English title is "First Love, No.4". "Preparing for the town festival." Ryusei often recited the famous poem about the first love by the poet Shimazaki Toson while he carved the wood blocks for 8 years to finish the series "First Love". He found the wet and gentle quality of Japanese paper and the watercolors of the traditional woodblock print were ideal for the expression of the lyrical states of the mind.
