Description

The short inscription on this painting was added by Prince Yūjō, Ōkyo's most important patron as a young artist. Some of the artist's finest compositions remain in the possession of the temple near Kyoto where Yūjō lived and became the abbot. He introduced Ōkyo to a number of clients who supported his career.
