Fukada Chokujō (1861-1947) was a Japanese painter in the Meiji Era. He studied the Shijō school under Morikawa Sobun. From 1881 to 1886, Fukada attended the Kyoto Painting School and strived to nurture the next generation. From 1886, he moved to Ōsaka and became one of the central artists in Ōsaka art circles, spreading the Shijō school among Ōsaka artists and thus keeping this painting style.
This work is a landscape painting where the vertical lines painted in ink are very impressive. It is a bold expression that almost makes one feel the rain in this scene and even the trees painted at the bottom also give the impression of being wet by the rain. Is the single bird crossing the middle of the painting from the right to the left looking for a place to rest its wings in the rain?
Matsumura Goshun, the ancestor of the Shijō school, studied under a literati painter Yosa Buson and it is said that he gave great importance on expressing a poetic sentiment on the painting. Even this painting presented here stirs up various imaginations, which allows us to feel exactly as one of the goals of the Shijō school. For sure, it is no exaggeration to say that this painting here is unique to Fukada Chokujō, who spread the Shijō school among modern Ōsaka artists.
