The Great Oi River, 1859

Comments - Fantastic scene of travelers crossing the wide Oi River. At right, a beauty relaxes with a pipe on a wooden platform as burly men carry her above the water. Behind her, another woman sits on a porter's shoulders, grabbing his head as he grips her by the ankles. The woman at left shields her eyes with her hand as she scans the distant shore. In the background at left a nobleman's enclosed palanquin is carried by a large team of laborers. The snowy peak of Mt. Fuji rises above low mountains on the horizon. A terrific subject with large expressive figures and fine shading in the water and sky.
