Hishida Shunsô was from the city of Iida in Nagano Prefecture. Along with individuals such as Okakura Tenshin and Yokoyama Taikan, he was involved in the establishment of Nihon Bijutsu-in (Japan Art Institute). He attempted a style of painting with no lines, called “Môrô-tai” (vague style), and together with Taikan, he promoted the movement to reform Japanese-style painting at the end of the Meiji period. This composition is a major work positioned in the early period of Môrô-tai. It devises the expression of the air and light through gradation techniques and skillfully expresses the subtly beautiful, silent charm of a valley in the midst of autumn.
