A Japanese peony, considered the “king of flowers,” has a symbolic meaning that includes wealth, good fortune, and honor. The peony originated in China. Around the eighth century, the Chinese introduced the peony to Japan. The peony is a favorite flower in gardens all over the world; its symbolic meaning serves as an inspiration for a variety of art forms.
In the “kakejiku” (hanging scroll) world, displaying the kakejiku of a peony painting is considered the best hospitality for a guest. Therefore, this kakejiku is often displayed even in seasons other than early summer.
This is a work of peonies painted by Hiramatsu Jun. He artfully expresses the mysterious atmosphere that the peonies possess, which is painted with tranquil colours. We can almost feel the vitality of the peonies.
