Description This elegant woman uses a fishing line to catch prawns as she drifts near the shore at Kanagawa. Her bunched-up sleeves and the scarf she holds in her teeth lend her an air of casualness. This adds a touch of realism to what is otherwise a luxurious fantasy.
Provenance C. Robert Snell, Oriental Arts & Antiques, Timonium, Maryland; purchased by Justine Lewis Keidel, Owings Mills, Maryland, after 1971; given to Walters Art Museum, 1991.
