In this view of the cozy parlor in the apartment he and his mother shared, Vuillard allowed the gas lamp suspended from the ceiling to dominate the composition, just as Ando Hiroshige had the huge festival lantern strung to the gateway of the Kinryusan temple at Asakusa. Both lamps are ornamented, one emblazoned with bold calligraphy, the other sashed with dark ribbon. Additional parallels in color, composition, and delicate overpatterning suggest that Vuillard had Hiroshige's print in mind when he made his own.
