Footnotes

  • This bold depiction of peacock, hen and chicks in peony and blossoming plum tree is likely from a Kano-school workshop in Kyoto. The style shows affiliations with the work of Sanraku and Sansetsu but is more simplified, indicating a later work in the tradition. The treatment of the birds, the male in particular, is a tour de force of color and texture with upwards of one-hundred and fifty brilliantly executed feathers in hues of blue, green, silver and gold.
