Moon at a Vacation House, 1891 - Beautiful triptych depicting a garden under a full moon, with a beauty playing the koto in the room at right. In the center, a woman waves goodbye to the young girl leaning over the railing. Grasses and colorful flowers line the walkway at left, with a willow tree above framing a pond with a small boat on it. At upper right, a fence surrounds another house with softly glowing shoji windows. An attractive design, richly colored with fine bokashi shading in the night sky.
