Comments - Lovely nighttime scene of a group of beauties enjoying a cool evening in a beautiful garden. A woman at left carries a round moon lute called a gekkin, and another beauty sits on a bench covered with a Western-style carpet. At right a beauty with freshly washed, loose flowing hair walks beside a young girl carrying an insect cage. A full moon glows in the sky above, and a small stream winds its way through the grounds at left. Lovely color and pattern in the elegant fabrics and blossoming flowers. A classic Chikanobu beauty print, wonderfully detailed and shaded.
