Enjoying the Evening Cool on the Banks of Sumida River - Beautiful Utamaro triptych of beauties strolling along the Sumida River enjoying the fireworks display and the cool evening weather. The crowded Ryogoku Bridge and many boats are silhouetted in the background against an evening sky. In the center panel, a man fires a rocket from a boat, a trail of red sparks curling across the sky. A fantastic design showing this classic summer pastime in Edo, with beautiful soft color, bokashi shading, and fine detail.
