The branches sag under the weight of the bright orange ripe persimmons, which is full of richness symbolizing the harvest in autumn. Persimmons have long symbolized the fertility of autumn. At the same time, “柿 Kaki”, the pronunciation of persimmon in Japanese is the same as “嘉来 (Kaki)”, which means “Joy comes”. So it has been regarded as a very auspicious fruit.
In this work, Yokoyama Kōshū drew such auspicious persimmons in bright colors. The rhythmically arranged orange-colored fruits give the joyful atmosphere of autumn. The chickadee that perches on the branch looks like it is pleased with the deepening autumn. This is a masterpiece that you can enjoy autumn.
