Artist: [Untranslated]*

This especially fine image shares in common with Image 1, a compositional and stylistic character typical of early 18th century prints. Specifically, a primary subject scene of few elements, suggesting with minimum effort an elegant domestic interior accented by a magnificent Prunus Mume [Flowering Apricot]. Pay attention to the significantly deeper pot by modern standards, very likely of antique Chinese origin.
