At Horikiri

At Horikiri by Mortimer Menpes. 1901. Watercolor. Source: Japan: A Record in Colour, facing p. 108. Horikiri is mentioned in the text as the place for irises (109), and here is a positive sea of them. The two figures quietly taking in the scene almost seem to be floating on them. — Jacqueline Banerjee
