- Curator's comments
- Though dated 1773 and bearing seals reading "Okyo", these sixteen views of the capital look stylistically to be by a 19th-century follower. Nevertheless, they are executed with considerable skill and topographical accuracy. (Label copy, TTC, 1997)
Seals seem to be the same as 'Landscape with scene of boating' (Hyogo Kenritsu Rekishi Hakubutsukan, 1994, no. 10), dated 1768. May well be a genuine work by Okyo (Kano Hiroyuki, 3/01).
