Comments - Lovely image of two beauties walking through the snow, each wrapped up in a hood and carrying an umbrella. At upper right, a laborer carrying shallow tubs hanging from a yoke makes his way up the hill leaving footprints in the snow, followed by another figure. We've never seen this subject before, and it appears to be a shin-hanga composition using elements from Hiroshige's prints. A beautiful winter design with a hand applied spattering of gofun (white pigment) to simulate falling snow.
