Descending Geese at Tanpo - Attractive portrait of a beauty sitting on a bed, staring petulantly over her shoulder a she clutches a green robe over one arm. Her plaid kimono is loosely wrapped about her, and she sits atop a black outer robe.

A charming, rarely seen Hiroshige beauty design, nicely detailed.
