This poster created by Jan Młodożeniec stands out due to its interesting appearance which resembles the traditional Japanese woodcut ukiyo-e. Although, at first sight, it may seem that the poster is dominated by the stereotypical “Japanese” style (a figure of a young woman wearing a kimono, letters arranged vertically, etc.), the composition is well-thought-out. This is indicated by the fact that the artist has decided to use arrangements typical of the traditional Japanese graphic arts by placing the elements of the composition in a “picture-in-picture” form (a figure of a man playing the shamisen), and by presenting the woman's figure in half-profile. As a result, the design is very elegant and has a lyrical nature.
The film A Portrait of Shunkin is an adaptation of the story of the same title, written by the Japanese writer Jun’ichiro Tanizaki, highly regarded for his mastery in depicting female characters. In Poland, the story was published under the title Shinkinsho, that is the contemplation of the life of Spring Harp in the collection Two stories on cruel love translated by Mikołaj Melanowicz.
