Comments - Lovely scene of three beauties relaxing in a room overlooking the water at Yokohama. The seated woman in the center looks up from a letter she is writing, the brush caught between her teeth as the paper trails onto the floor. Her companion at left holds a flute, the panel behind her decorated with cranes. At lower right, a koto can be seen at the foot of the standing beauty. Mountains run across the horizon, and houses crowd together along the curving shore at right upper right. An attractive Edo era beauty design, nicely detailed.
