Ushibori, Hitachi Province

A large boat is moored by the edge of a lake at Ushibori. In this tranquil scene, two egrets are startled into flight by the sound of a man pouring water from his cooking pot into the lake. The shape of the ship’s bows echoes the curves of Mount Fuji in the background. Early copies of this print are in shades of blue only, while later versions also introduce areas of green, pink and yellow.
