Object Description
Wangpou (J. Oho) was so diligent about calming his mother's fear of lightning that even after her death, he would go to her tomb during a rainstorm to comfort her. By contrast, this modern woman, caught in a summer downpour, seems unconcerned about the thunder. To further emphasize the contemporary setting, Chikanobu includes a riksha, a new mode of transportation in 19th century Tokyo.

Provenance
Purchased in Japan by Professor Bruce Coates in 1998, with funds from the Aoki Endowment for Japanese Arts and Cultures.

Publisher
Hasegawa Hisaharu.
