This Shōnen’s work has a unique composition where the sunrise is peeping through the entwined pine branches. The pine tree, painted with hasty but strong brushstrokes, illustrates full vitality. This painting well represents artistic features of Shōnen, known as ‘return of Shōhaku Soga’ and also called ‘modern Shōhaku’ by his high-minded artistic style and stubborn personal character. A sense of distance between the branches, expressed by the contrast of thick and thin sumi ink, reflects not only his flamboyance but also tender personality.
