Description: This image is taken from a Meiji-era book of designs by one of the leading painters of the day, Kawabata Gyokusho, which was intended to serve as a te-hon - a 'copy book' - for students of watercolour brush painting, and which was issued in Meiji 33 (1900).

The volume - which is an unbound collection of single sheets - is entitled Picture Collection for High School Girls, and is a wonderful collection of varied material for the students to copy: landscapes, figures, still life, and others.

This particular image is one of the most attractive in the set, with its bold outline for the tea caddy contrasting with the delicate gradations of the leaves, and the audacious bright splash of vermillion across the sheet.
