Description

Mounted and unframed.

Stream courses down channel through the town of Chartres. Water flows under a double-arched white bridge past grassy banks, gushing through two sluices into a walled channel where a woman washes clothes directly from an opening in a blue-roofed building on the left. Across the water on the right is a walled enclosure of grassy land. In the background red and blue-roofed buildings are visible among fall foliage. Peeking out at the top, a blue-roof with three small spires and two large spires reaches toward the blue sky.

Inscription
Signed in medium, bottom left corner: H. Sugimoto, Chartres Written on back, top center: Stream of Chartre [sic] / 24" x 20"
