“Jakuchū specialized in kachō (‘bird-and-flower’) subjects, not only the more common themes, such as flowering plums and geese in autumn, but also less frequently depicted ones, such as vegetables, marine life and exotic and barnyard fowl.” ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ “He is particularly known for his paintings of chickens, which he observed first-hand, along with the other more unusual birds that he kept on the grounds of his residence. He admired them for their vigor and striking plumage, and also possibly because the rooster was traditionally associated with the nobility of the gentleman of superior virtue.“⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Joan H. O’Mara: Itō Jakuchū / Oxford Art, 2003⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Itō Jakuchū: Nandina and Rooster (color on silk), c. 1760⁣⁣

I'm in the process of planning new content for Artfromjapan. Are there any specific artists, styles, themes, topics and/or genres of Japanese art you would like to see covered in the future?⁣ ⁣ Kawase Hasui: Snow at Zōjō Temple, 1953

“One of the hallmarks of Hasui's genius is that his designs always hint at a story or suggest a human drama. This narrative quality contrasts a certain misconception about Hasui, that he was strictly a landscape artist.”⁣ ⁣ “I would argue that he was a chronicler of human activity. He fills his scenes with men and women working the rice fields, tilling the land, fishing the rivers and streams, carrying burdens, driving oxcarts, washing clothes, nursing babies or tending cooking fires.”⁣ ⁣ “These vignettes counter another misconception - that Hasui portrayed an idealized version of Japan. There is nothing idealized about his vision. He knew that living is hard work.”⁣ ⁣ René C. Balcer: Impressions, No. 34 (2013), p. 115 ⁣ Kawase Hasui: Snow at Hi Marsh, Mito, 1947 ⁣
