Woodblock print by artist Koho Shoda (1870-1946) titled "A Bridge in the Rainy Season", part of the "Scenes by Koho" series by publisher Hasegawa. It is a beautiful scene showing a geisha woman with a parasol being rowed by a man in a straw hat under a bridge, with pouring rain around them. Two other women are shown crossing paths at the far end of the bridge. Shoda used excellent "bokashi" style (gradation) shading, gorgeous deep colors and amazing detail. Signed and stamped, dated 1910-1920. Size: 8.75" height, 14" width
