Two great views on a single sheet, each depicting various watercraft negotiating the rapids of the river. Fine strapwork title cartouche divides the views and each has its own cartouche. In the lower view a large crowd of onlookers seem to be enjoying a picnic while enjoying the spectacle. Marginal fold separation at bottom, else very fine with lovely color.
