This original woodblock print, c1937, depicts visitors, mostly women and children, touring the palace and gardens.   'Shokei ( Changgyeong) Palace', which is located in the heart of Seoul.  Changgyeong Palace was first built by the 4th ruler of the Joseon Dynasty, King Sejong, for his retiring father, King Taejong.  During the reign of King Seongjong, it was renovated and renamed to Changgyeonggung Palace.  It eventually became a park, with a zoo and a botanical garden during Japanese colonial rule (1910-1945), the period during which Yoshida made this painting.  This print bears Yoshida's Kanji cipher, along with its Kanji and English title and Yoshida's signature in pencil. It is an original lifetime print, c1937.
