The work was executed by Kusakabe Meikaku (1838 – 1922), a native of Hikone and one of Japan’s leading modern-era calligraphers. The work was exhibited at a grand event celebrating his 80th birthday. The confident rei-sho(clerical script) shows no sign of aging, and is considered a leading example of Kusakabe’s later work.
