絵師: Okamoto Ryusei
作品名: First Love # 6
画題等: "Kimi Koiuru Mune no Sazanami" ("My Heart Beats Flatter When I Think About You"). From the series "First Love", No.6. 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 this series. 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.
