Katsushika Oei, Detail from Three Women Playing Musical Instruments, Museum of Fine Arts Boston


"I suspected there was more to this silenced and subdued woman than history allowed. But I did not know the extent to which O-ei’s secret is the secret of Hokusai himself. I might have given up if she hadn’t kept speaking to me. As my research continued I found a surprising truth. Now I understand what was at stake and why it hadn’t been told." - Katherine Govier
