Object Detail


Description
print The heavens open. The sudden shower, a favorite subject of Edo haiku poets and ukiyo-e artists, is often depicted with a criss-crossing pattern of fine lines of rain—a difficult woodblock technique. Here, the net-like pattern is superimposed over an intensely focused image of Ōhashi (the Great Bridge), which crosses the Sumida River.
