A Blond Day by Mortimer Menpes. 1901. Watercolor. Source: Japan: A Record in Colour, facing p. 24. Menpes greatly enjoys the "mellow light" of Japan (40). Here are people shading themselves with parasols or under the canopy of a stall, apparently at the entrance to a shrine or temple. [Click on the image to enlarge it.] — Jacqueline Banerjee
