by Nobukazu (1874 - 1944)
Comments - Striking illustration of the great fireworks display above Ryogoku Bridge on the Sumida River. An enormous explosion fills the evening sky with orange light and a shower of red sparks. Beauties watch from a pleasure boat at right, one woman gesturing with her fan as a young girl at her feet laughs with delight. Another beauty leans over to rinse her cup in the flowing water, her kimono sleeve carefully held between her teeth to keep it from getting wet. A soft pink light glows from the windows of the teahouses lining the river, with red paper lanterns adding additional color. Beautifully detailed with soft shading in the sky. A great image of this favorite summer pastime.
