Remarks
"This oil is from the series of Noh subjects I painted when I lived in Tokyo. The masked male actor plays the female spirit of a wisteria plant in a slow and stately dance that inspired a Kabuki version, The Wisteria Maiden, which I have also painted and made into woodblock prints. This is one of only a small handful of my Noh series still in my possession - many sold at the time and of the eighty-odd in the series I have perhaps only seven or eight still in the studio."
