“A lovely four-panel composition featuring an interesting overview of various spaces.”
A young aristocratic couple being peeped on by two excited young women who are standing behind a wall. Visible through a window in the background another couple is approaching hesitantly. The back wall, partially covered by the folding screen, is decorated with a swallow perched on a twig surrounded by blossom which refers to the spring season (shunga lit. means ‘spring picture’).
