This painting of ivy, bush clover, mallow, cockscomb, and grasses was formerly in the collection of the Philadelphia artist Mary Cassatt (1844-1926). The painter to whom the work is attributed, Kitagawa Sösetsu, was a disciple of Tawaraya Sösetsu, who was either a younger brother, son, or disciple of the famed early-seventeenth-century Rimpa-school painter Tawaraya Sötatsu.
