In front of a plumpish quail, burned branches and bamboo leaves with their tips changing colors are shown. The branch of an oak, weighed down by leaves and nuts, hangs over the bird’s head. The fullness of its feathers, the hardness of acorns, and the texture of the leaves are successfully expressed. Taikan generally tends to be thought of as a painter who moves his brush naturally, just using his great mind. However, in this work, we can find sensitivity hidden inside the manly Taikan through the well-expressed detail of nature.
