Women and Children Catching Fireflies

Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Ladies in elegant kimonos and elaborate coiffures enjoy themselves catching fireflies with their children in the Kenrokuen Garden, in Kanazawa. The color and fluidity of movement of the five small figures arrayed across the foreground set them apart from the plain, stylized landscape. The Kenrokuen Garden can still be visited today; the decorative lantern on the right adorns the same bridge after 200 years.
Provenance Justine Lewis Keidel [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1986, by gift.
