That's the title of this woodblock print by American artist Helen Hyde (1868-1919).  Hyde began her art studies at twelve, and in young adulthood studied at the San Francisco School of Design and abroad in Berlin, Paris, Holland and England.  In 1899 an interest in Japanese art and culture took her to that nation, and it was there she found her truest inspiration.  You may read about her life and work here.
