Original Nobukazu (1874 - 1944) Japanese Woodblock Print
Fireworks on the River at Ryogoku, 1894
Comments - Fantastic triptych depicting a magnificent fireworks display above Ryogoku Bridge on the Sumida River. Two beauties stand on the deck of a pleasure boat at left, enjoying the cool evening breeze as explosions shower the sky with trails of red and orange sparks. The women wear colorful summer kimono patterned with delicate flowers. In the cabin of the boat at right, a man enjoys a cup of sake while a beauty plays a shamisen. A terrific view of the river crowded with boats, with wonderful detail in the bridge stretching across the background in dark silhouette. A lovely illustration of this classic summer activity.
