It depicts a silhouetted night scene with a woman and child walking toward a five-storied pagoda.  The moon, high in the sky, along with the child's lantern light their path.  This print was published by Hasegawa-Nishinomiya, c1910-20's.  It is an early edition on thick paper, which did not have any seals.  It measures 10" x 7.25".  It is in very good condition with just slight generalized toning.  This print comes from a collection in Connecticut, with many of this series having handwritten Christmas greetings, dated 1925, including this one.  These were stored in an album for nearly 100 years.  The Night Scenes series of twenty-one chuban prints illustrates evening views evocative of traditional Japan in a limited palette of sepia or blue originally issued in the 1910s, although Nishinomiya seems to have continued to produce the simple nocturnes in the same format into the 1920s.  The collaborative series included the work of Koho Shoda (1871-1946), Yoshimune Arai (1873-1945), Kobayashi Kiyochika (1847-1915), Suzuki Gyosui (1898-?) and Kobayashi Eijiro (1870-1946). A 1920s catalogue issued by Hasegawa-Nishinomiya illustrates each of the twenty-one designs with titles. P7522
