Picture of Prosperity in the Eastern Capital, 1855

Comments - Attractive triptych depicting beauties strolling along a busy street, a sign of prosperity in Edo. A woman in the center smiles happily as she waves a small folding fan near her face, dressed in a red kimono with a tie-dyed pattern of waterwheels and leaves. At right, a young boy carries a cloth wrapped parcel over his shoulder as he follows the beauties. Other shoppers and pedestrians can be seen in the background, with rust and brown curtains hanging in front of the shops lining the street, and large signs overhead. A charming subject with beautiful detail.
