The harvest season…The beautiful golden rice fields waiting to be harvested have been one of the most popular autumn scenes in Japan since ancient times. Ears of rice in autumn are, for this reason, often chosen as the subject of paintings. It is thus not rare for their pictures to be made into hanging scrolls for display in autumn to express gratitude for this year’s bountiful harvest and pray for the coming year.
In this work, Kawamura Kanpō depicts ears of rice in autumn with beautiful gold. The ears swaying in the wind are fantastically depicted, giving the audience a sense of autumnal atmosphere. The flock of sparrows seems to be happy with the harvest of autumn, bringing a smile to the viewers. The seed hulls of the ears are painted in gold, which gives a sense of the light of a sunny autumn day to make this work a pleasant one to look at.
