Autumn Leaves

Yokoyama Taikan1931

This was exhibited for the 18th Inten Exhibition. It is a masterpiece that it is said to have made the Japanese-styled exhibition site more colorful, and is the most gorgeous example of his work. Taikan creates a flow by painting most of the space ultramarine blue and expresses the clear atmosphere of autumn by adding white-silver ripples. Red autumn leaves are laid out in the left half, and in the right half he shows the sadness of a quaint, remote canyon by adding a wagtail flying off in the distance. This is not just a decorative work, but also a work of excellence, filled with Taikan’s tension. His depth and noble character are admirable.
