The nandina, which bears bright red fruits in winter, is a popular winter theme. In particular, the patterns drawn with snow are often considered as an auspicious combination of red and white. This work is a haiga (simple painting praising haiku poetry) that was a specialty of Japanese-style painter Oguri Senshū. A sparrow is placed on nandina in the snow, and a winter phrase of Matsuo Bashō, a haiku poet in the Edo period, is added. The phrase is as follows.
On an unexpected snowy morning, in the world of silver and white, you feel fresh seeing the passing horses that you are used to seeing.
I wonder if the snow scene was spreading even when the author was drawing this work. The work tells us the impression of the author when he saw the familiar nandina in the world of silver and white.
