Kagurazaka at Ushigome, 1939
17 x 10.75 in
Description: On a rainy evening, a woman approaches a teahouse with large lantern above, featuring the letters of Doi Hangaten, the Publisher; the glow of the lantern softly illuminates the scene - house- fronts and street, as rain descends in light. vertical lines onto the wet pavement. The isolation of the woman with umbrella is relieved by the small figure approaching just around the corner in the distance. A mood of quiet pervades, as in so many of Koitsu's works.
