Description: This fan print was produced in the pre-war period, and the artist, publisher, and production method are unknown (probably machine printing). Since many fan prints are consumable and do not remain usually, such prints may be valuable even if they have stains, misregistrations, or other damages.

In this charming scene, we can perceive some birds floating on the water, they are very well aligned in a diagonal line that goes toward the horizon. In the foreground, some vegetation is growing on the shore of the lake or the sea. We can perceive some land on the horizon, in the background. This water landscape is under what we can assume is a very hot summer day if we look at the orange sky. The interesting palette where the orange of the sky, the green of the vegetation, and the navy of the shore have a very strong contrast, makes us think of an abstract painting.


There are spots and creases on this print. Also, there is a pinhole in the center part.
