Descending Geese on the Sumida River, 1867 - Attractive collaborative scene by Chikanobu and Kunichika depicting Prince Genji and beauties on a pleasure boat, looking up as three geese fly past the full moon, descending for the night. The young nobleman smiles happily as he leans against the roof of the cabin, a folding fan in his hand. Inside the boat, a beauty relaxes with a tiny cup of sake, while her companion emerges in the stern, a folding fan caught between her teeth. At left, two women in a smaller boat enjoy the cool evening air. A handsome design.
