Poem: Kokoro ni mo/ arade uki yo ni/ nagaraeba/ koishikarubeki/ yowa no tsuki kana 心にも あらで浮世に ながらへば 恋しかるべき 夜半の月かな 鯉にも恋の訓あれバ 今ハ吉田の松若も 憂世をせばく荵売 広振袖と破衣と 片身替の花の雨 開く名画の一軸ハ 聖天町の法界坊を 戯場にものせし鐘ヶ淵の起元 柳下亭種員筆記

By 1911, purchased by William Sturgis Bigelow (b. 1850–d. 1926), Boston [see note 1]; 1911, gift of Bigelow to the MFA. (Accession Date: January 19, 2005) NOTES:  Much of Bigelow's collection of Asian art was formed during his residence in Japan between 1882 and 1889, although he also made acquisitions in Europe and the United States. Bigelow deposited many of these objects at the MFA in 1890 before donating them to the Museum's collection at later dates.
