Boating under the Moonlight, 1890 - Lovely image of a shirabyoshi dancer and a young attendant on a boat poled by a young nobleman under the moonlight.

Her attendant carries a hand drum and looks over her shoulder at two beauties watching from the shore. The full moon glows softly in the darkening evening sky. Beautifully drawn, with light embossing on the white kimono. An attractive, rarely seen Chikanobu design.
