Nissaka: Evening View of Mt. Nakayama, 1854 - Intriguing scene of a beauty standing over a water basin made from a tree stump, watching in amazement as water spurts up from it like a fountain. She waves a dipper above her head as she looks down, her brows slightly furrowed. A blue kimono patterned with plum blossoms lies on the ground nearby, and she wears a tie-dyed red outer robe bordered with a blue print over a yellow floral kimono. Hiroshige's landscape above shows the station of Nissaka with Mt. Nakayama beyond, with a few buildings lining the road at right and pine tree dotting the softly shaded grassy slope at left. An attractive design, nicely colored and detailed, with embossing in the white areas of the kimono.
