In this rare woodblock print, made in 1896 by Miyagawa Shuntei (宮川春汀) and entitled "Cool of the Evening" (夕すずみ), the artist depicts two little girls in the moonlight of a summer evening on the edge of a river.

The work is taken from the series "Customs and Manners of Small Children" (小供風俗) and was printed by the publisher Akiyama Buemon (秋山武右衛門), owner of Kokkeido (滑稽堂).

The xylography, despite the right signs of time, is in good general condition thanks also to an effective relining carried out on the back with another sheet of Japanese washi paper (和紙).
