Comments - Charming scene of beauties gathering on a terrace for a maple viewing party. At right, a young girl carries a container of water with tiny cups floating in it up the stairs. A kneeling woman smiles happily at her, a tobacco set and pipe spread out on the tatami mat before her. In the center, two beauties chat excitedly as a boat approaches carrying friends, one woman waving a greeting. She wears a beautiful kimono shaded from red to green with a pattern of white flowers and flowing water. Colorful autumn maple leaves frame a view of the water and the opposite shore, where a young nobleman stands beside a man fishing. An orange glow spreads along the horizon as the sun sets. Lovely detail in this attractive subject.
