Description: An Utamaro print depicting two quails (uzura) and one skylark (hibari), originally from the album Momo chidori kyôka awase (Myriad Birds: A Kyoka Competition). The kyoka (light verse) poems that appeared in the original print do not appear in this version.


This particular edition was produced by the O-Edo Mokuhan-sha in the immediate post-war period. There are a few foxing spots from its long storage in their packaging, from which it has now been (thankfully) released!

Very smooth and pleasant colouring ...
