Art on Tuesday: Sunset across the Ryôgoku Bridge

Today’s post shows another picture of the series 36 views of Mount Fuji by Katsushika Hokusai 葛飾北斎 of 1830. It is called 御厩川岸より両国橋夕陽見 Sunset across the Ryôgoku Bridge at the Sumida River in today’s Tôkyô. It shows a ferry-boat with some passengers and their luggage. The ferryman is moving the boat with a stick. In the background you see the Ryôgoku bridge and a blue Mount Fuji in the same color as the water in the front down by the ferry-boat.
