Description

Figures in a landscape. There is a woman in a blue and white kimono at bottom center. She has a yellow basket with black cross hatching on her back and is seen from behind. To her left is a figure in a boat wearing green and blue. There is a large tree on the left. There is water in the middle ground and gray mountains in the distance. The water and sky are blue and the land gray. The horizon line is about halfway down from the top.
