Rooster, which heralds the morning at sunrise, have been popular in Japan as a bird of good luck to bring the sun. It is often taken up as a subject of paintings. For example, paintings by Itō Jakuchū, a visionary painter of the Edo period, are famous.
In this painting, Kawamura Kanpō depicts a rooster resting its wings on the trunk of a thick plum tree in vivid colors. The rooster is more realistic than the plum tree, and the delicate depictions of its wings and legs are worthy of special mention. The contrast between the two makes the rooster stand out even more, which is very impressive. It is also interesting to see a rare depiction of the rooster with such sharp eyes.
