Summer, Ryogoku Fireworks - Lovely Kuniyoshi triptych of beauties and a small boy playing near the shore and watching the fantastic fireworks near the Ryogoku Bridge. The woman at left carries a small insect cage, while in the center, a young child clamors at his mother's side. Another sits on a bench beneath the gently waving willow branches at right. Boats can be seen in silhouette on the river as fireworks spiral through the sky leaving trails of orange sparks. A charming design with fine bokashi shading in the water and sky.
