Ukita, Ikkei `Shukei Arashiyama-zu` [Autumn Scenery of Arashiyama]

About the artwork:

Oigawa River runs through Arashiyama.
Upstream of the river, coloured trees bend in the autumn breeze.

This is an artwork in which the artist has skillfully expressed the flow of the river and wind using lines, light, shade, and the permeation of the ink.
It is a masterpiece which, while using a lot of white space, stunningly expresses Japan`s beauty.


About the artist:

Ukita, Ikkei (1795-1859)

Ikkei, active in the Bakumatsu period, was a painter of Yamato-e, a style of Japanese painting which developed in the Heian period.

There are many lightly-coloured artworks by Ikkei which have been rapidly painted.

As Ikkei told his pupils, he firmly believed that `if, without selfish intention, one does one`s best to stop copying the spirit of old paintings, one`s own character will appear naturally`.

His works are currently held by the Kyoto National Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and other institutions domestically and internationally.
Because many songs were composed about Arashiyama by the Heian period aristocracy, it is the perfect depiction of Japanese scenery and therefore a beautiful backdrop against which to display a bonsai.

This is an elegant Japanese-style work which has been inspired by the sights, sounds, and feelings of the colours of momiji [autumn leaves], the cool autumn breeze, and the running river.
