Sepia Saturday

Five Girls On A Boat : Third Party Print (1920s)

Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers with a visual prompt each week. This week we’re challenged by the photo of four women on a boat.

I found these photos in the Library of Congress, but if you want to join you can use your own nostalgic family photos. Click here to get to Sepia Saturday Central where you can find lots of links to posts.

    Beautiful prints – I am fascinated by Chinese and Japanese art. Thanks for looking them up.

    Once again I am reminded how literal I am in reading the prompt. The boat never occurred to me. The artwork you selected reminds me of a lot of the prints that my grandaunt Velma brought home after her years of teaching in Korea.

    A great spin on our theme. I really like Japanese art especially the woodblock prints. One can see how modern Japanese anime developed from this old art tradition.
