A seascape as varied as water can be fills the foreground of this Japanese painting from Ando (Utagawa) Hiroshige entitled "(Awe Province) Navaro Rapids". The influence of revolutionary painter of water Kasushika Hokusai can clearly be seen in the wall of water rising at the left edge of the painting, brown in its body and turning to claw-like foam at its top. The water below is a blue mixture of whirlpools and undulating waves. Another, smaller rise of brown water rises in the painting's right. Low, green land lies under an orange, yellow and blue sky while a few small, gray clouds dot the sky above them. A red and a yellow banner hangs in the upper right corner and another orange-red banner in the bottom, all of them filled with Japanese text. It is a visually fascinating, culturally distinctive painting, perfect for bringing the beauty of the East into your home.
