On the Yodo River, Hiroshige. From the series KYOTO MEISHO, or Famous Views in Kyoto. A lovely view of a ferry crossing the Yodo River at night. The boat is crowded with passengers as two boatmen pole the craft along the water. A full moon glows overhead with a cuckoo flying in front of it, a lucky omen, with misty clouds drifting past. This series, which contains many masterpieces, may be recognized by having a narrow double-line border.
Date: Originally created in 1834, this is a woodblock reprint from the 20th century.
