Boating - Lovely triptych of beauties enjoying a ride on pleasure boat to view the cherry blossoms in spring. One woman stands in the prow, one hand on the roof of the cabin to keep her balance as the boat moves forward through the calm water. She wears an attractive kimono patterned with colorful iris and flowing water. A young girl seated at the railing gestures to her companions, pointing out a special sight. A terrific composition, the scene framed by a cherry tree growing from a cliff at right. Beautiful detail in the elegant fabrics with faint embossed detail on the white kimono collars.
