  • Catalogue text

    Two women wearing yukata are cooling down after taking a bath on an autumn day. The woman with the fan still has her hair tied up with a white ribbon to keep it dry and in shape. The other woman is putting on her lipstick while looking at a mirror.

    The ‘singing of the insects’ suggests autumn.
