This work was produced by request for Okamoto Kihachi, who is a great Japanese film director. Okamoto was envisioning and planning a movie while bedridden with illness, and he asked the painter, Miyasako Masaaki, to express the essence of his movie ideas in a picture. The totally restrained coloring suggests reminiscent feelings, even melancholy, in this work.
