Beauties overlooking the Sumida River, 1854

Comments - Lovely spring scene of beauties on a verandah overlooking the Sumida River. The woman at left smiles at her companions as she gestures across the water, one hand leaning against the railing. The woman in the center wears a black kimono bordered with strawberries, a blue and white towel wrapped around her neck. Trays of food are set out on the floor for a meal, taking advantage of the spring weather. Cherry trees are in bloom and covered with pink and white blossoms, and at upper left, the opposite shore is busy with pedestrians strolling along the bank and stopping at tea stand decorated with red paper lanterns. A beautiful subject.
