The Stall by the Bridge

The Stall by the Bridge by Mortimer Menpes. 1901. Watercolor. Source: Japan: A Record in Colour, facing p. 64. Another of Menpes's "stall" scenes: here, the main interest is in the yellow umbrella shading the goods, which seems to cast a glow on the goods laid out for inspection. The bridge referred to here can be seen in the next painting, which shows the broad road ahead. — Jacqueline Banerjee
