Woodblock print (reprint), Published by Adachi - Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) - 'Poem by Kiyowara no Fukayabu' - From the series "One Hundred Poems Explained by the Nurse" - Heisei period (1989-2019)
It is recorded in the last volume of "A selection of Hokusai's Works".
This is an example in which the purport of the original poem is illustrated in a way analogized into an aspect of everyday life of common citizens of Edo. The poem by Fukayabu is the one inscribed in the cartouche :
Natsu no yo wa
Kumo no izuko ni
Hokusai represented the scene by a sight deep in a summer night on River Sumida in Edo. It appear to be somewhere a little down the Ryugoku Bridge. The buildings with triangular roofs and of similar dimensions, standing in a row on the yonder bank, are the ofuna-gura (boat houses) where boats of the feudal government used to be kept.
