One of the best designs in this very appealing series that to this dealer was a bridge between Hiroshige and Hasui, between old Edo and modern Tokyo. View from beneath a bridge of a man on a log raft poling his craft along the snow-covered banks. A fire wafts smoke across his log raft, and his legs are bare beneath his straw coat. With extensive mica in the water and sky.
