Morning glory is one of the most popular plants in Japan. Morning glories bloom profusely throughout the summer, over the country fences, walls, hedges, and anywhere, but they bloom fresh every morning, with no flowers from the day before. However splendid the flowers are this morning, they fade even before noon the same day. This evanescent glory appeals very much to the Japanese imagination.
This is a painting of morning glories by Nakamura Chikutei particularly characterized by the beautiful purple color of the flowers. The leaves, painted with a *tarashikomi technique, are very realistic and elaborate.
A high-level technique of Japanese-style painting for attaining a natural blur by making use of the difference in the specific gravity between pigments.
