An Avenue of Lanterns

An Avenue of Lanterns by Mortimer Menpes. 1901. Watercolor. Source: Japan: A Record in Colour, facing p. 74. A typical scene in the precincts of a shrine or temple, with stone lanterns and paper lanterns, the broad expanse of the path, a few people walking.... a lovely atmospheric scene, seemingly far away from the hubbub of the outside world. — Jacqueline Banerjee
