Chrysanthemum flowers represent the autumn. A chrysanthemum is considered noble in Japan because the Japanese imperial crest is in the shape of a chrysanthemum. Chrysanthemums were developed under Japanese gardening technology. As a result, many Japanese people love chrysanthemum flowers.
This is a painting of chrysanthemums by Ogiso Shōun. The beautiful colors of the chrysanthemums stand out among the gentle colors of the entire piece. The white chrysanthemums drawn with “gofun” (white pigments) are splendid. The leaves, drawn with the *tarashikomi technique, give dignity to the work and express the noble image of the chrysanthemum. This is, unquestionably, a masterpiece of Shōun Ogiso.
tarashikomi: A high-level technique of Japanese-style painting for attaining natural blur by making use of the difference in the specific gravity of pigments.
