Yokoyama Kōshū was born in Tōkyō in 1935. He studied kachō-ga (flower and bird painting) and animal painting under Horie Gyokuhō, a master of tora-e (tiger paintings). He specializes in kachō-ga, full of poetic sentiment.
This work features persimmons that have turned bright orange, conveying an autumn atmosphere. The persimmons, painted with gradation, convey a sense of freshness. The detailed color changes in the leaves can be interestingly seen, which add variety to the painting. The temple that the chickadee is looking at from the tree’s trunk is the Hōryūji Temple in Nara. By using light sumi ink, Yokoyama Kōshū has made the temple seem as if in the distance. This work shows the wide range of his paintings, adding the essence of landscape painting to kachō-ga.
