This print is from a series called Kenjo Hakkei (Virtuous Women for the Eight Views). This series of eight chu-tanzaku prints compares eight virtuous women of history with eight famous views. The "EIGHT VIEWS" was a theme borrowed from Chinese Poetry and adapted to various scenes in Japan, the subject for each scene being the same, with its attendant poem, whatever the locality. The eight subjects were : (1) Snow ; (2) Evening Rain ; (3) Autumn Moon ; (4) Vesper Bells ; (5) Boats Returning at Evening ; (6) Geese Flying to Rest ; (7) Sunset ; and (8) Clearing Weather after Rain. Here is Tegoshi Shosho, the wife of Soga Goro, waiting to guide the Soga brothers to their revenge, pouring rain outside.
