Katsushika Hokusai Japanese
Not on view
A bridge built in a single immense arch balanced on wood piers spans the length of the composition. To be able to withstand floods, it passes high above a dark gray river bed veined blue with thin rivulets of water. Crowds crossing the brown and yellow bridge watch a group of archers shooting at a target in the distant river bed.
