Comments - Terrific scene of beauties on top of the Ryogoku bridge enjoying the cool of the Sumida River in Edo. At right, a beauty leans over the railing while her companion fans herself. In the center, a mother holds a squirming baby with a rattle in his hand, the child reaching for a young girl as she points to something below. A lovely design with soft color and fine detail. A classic Utamaro beauty subject.
