Physical description:

Two lovers on a boat landing with crows flying in front of a full moon rising above the clouds.

Allen Hockley in his book on Koryūsai lists this hashira-e as F63 on page 255. He notes that it is listed in Pins where it is illustrated as #324 on page 158. That one is listed as being from a collection in Haifa. Both Hockley and Pins note that there is a copy in the Art Institute, Chicago, but this one is not illustrated at their web site online.
