A peaceful scene of ducks by a river bank. Morning glories of various colour and bloom reveal the autumnal season. Stylised wisps of grasses and reeds line the waters, whilst a large dragonfly perches high atop the composition. The naturalistic style is exemplary of Matsumura Keibun's (1779-1843) work. Influenced by the renowned Maruyama Okyo (1733-1795), the founder of his eponymous school in Kyoto, and Chinese literati painting, this design after Keibun succeeds in emulating his balance of form and harmony through the subject of nature.
