Comments - Fantastic image of a young beauty returning home from the bath on a spring evening. A shaft of light from a lantern floods across the scene, illuminating two dogs fighting ferociously at lower left. The silhouettes of people on the busy street behind the woman form an intriguing backdrop. A terrific scene with masterful shading and handling of the effects of light. A great subject, rarely seen in reprint.
