  • Thumbnail for Maple Tree and Autumn Plants, Left half
    Maple Tree and Autumn Plants, Left half

    The ambiance in the maple composition is elegantly theatrical with its profusion of colors and diversity of flora, but with the distinctive admixture and reflection evoked by autumn. The flowers below, fragrant olive, cockscomb, bush clover, and chrysanthemum, complement the coloristic array of high autumn created by the individual maple leaves, some still green, some already a rich crimson, and some a desiccated yellow. The screen, with its massive trunk (85 cm across) and gnarled branches, set against a shimmering background of gold, clearly reveals Eitoku's influence in its preoccupation with dramatic visual impact and assertive brushwork.
