Arai: View of the Distant Lake and the Horie Area; Old Woman at the Lake - Unusual image of a young boy displaying his privates to an elderly woman, who peers at him through a monocle or eyeglass. The landscape of the Horie area above by Hiroshige features a spit of land extending across a bay to a large, gently rounded island dotted with pine trees. A very small rocky island can be seen at right, with steep cliffs lining the shore. An interesting subject, attractively colored. This print is from a later edition with a colored background.
