This is a watercolor reproduction of an ukiyo-e wood block print of a kabuki actor combined with this Song dynasty era Chinese poem. I liked the colors and expressiveness of this print and thought it fit well with the sentiments of the poem. I find the calligraphy, the painting and the poem to be complementary. What do you think?
