The plum-tree is the first tree to blossom, and it indicates that spring has arrived. This is why plum blossoms are considered as a symbol of vitality in Japan.
This is a painting of plum blossoms by Kinoshita Yumeji. Kinoshita Yumeji, nihonga (Japanese-style) painter, skillfully painted colour and shape of the individual petals. Thin black sumi ink on a background that elegantly outlines the hazy moon indicates that it depicts a night scene. We can almost see as if the plum blossoms are rejoicing in their lives. Yumeji’s accomplished painting techniques are seen ubiquitously on the painting.
