夏の部。利根川は関東一の名流で坂東太郎の異名を持つ。ばらばら松は広重の『絵本江戸土産』にも登場するが、場所は諸説ある。川魚を獲る投網と、その勢いに驚くかのように飛ぶ白鷺の姿を描く。 – 藤澤紫Ｋ

By 1911, purchased by William Sturgis Bigelow (b. 1850–d. 1926), Boston [see note 1]; 1911, gift of Bigelow to the MFA. (Accession Date: January 19, 2005)
 Much of Bigelow's collection of Asian art was formed during his residence in Japan between 1882 and 1889, although he also made acquisitions in Europe and the United States. Bigelow deposited many of these objects at the MFA in 1890 before donating them to the Museum's collection at later dates.
