Comments - Beautiful view inside Kannon Temple at Asakusa, with large paper lanterns hanging from the carved beams overhead and many visitors below. At lower right, a woman leads her daughter by the hand while two women at left bow their heads in prayer. Pigeons flutter through the open space and a few shafts of sunlight fall across the shadowy space at right. A lovely design. Works by Narazaki Eisho are rarely seen on the market, and this is his best known work.
