Snow in the Countryside, 1899 - Charming image of a beauty and a young girl in the snow outside a country house. The woman carries a basketful of greens that she has gathered, and she smiles happily as she looks down at the child. She wears a brown striped kimono lined with a pink print, tucked up at the front for easier walking. At left, an elderly woman can be seen tending a kettle hanging over a floor hearth. The colorful clothing creates a nice contrast to the white of the snow and the pale blue of the sky. Nicely detailed with burnishing on the black collar and obi. A handsome design from this rarely seen Chikanobu beauty series.
