Matsuo Bashō, one of the greatest haiku poem masters in the history of Japan, was active in the early Edo period. He composed haiku poetry with extremely high artistic quality, and later, he became known worldwide as a haiku saint. This work is composed of a painting of red plum blossoms by a Japanese artist, Yuki Bishū, and a haiku poem by Matsuo Bashō about red plum blossoms. The meaning of Bashō’s haiku poem is as follows:
“I wonder what kind of beautiful woman is behind the bamboo blind of the mansion that smells red plum blossoms.”
The fragrance of red plum blossoms and the presence of a bamboo blind tickle the heart of love, and this is what makes its viewers smile. The red plum blossoms painted to match this haiku poem are somewhat bewitching. The calligraphy and painting together make the work heartwarming and profound.
