The composition and subject matter of this landscape reflect the artist's knowledge of Chinese painting styles. Although the subject is conventional, this painting has a fresh quality, enlivened by color and the lattice of pines that prefigures the eclecticism of Taki Katei's later work.
Katei, whose work was shown in the Vienna World Exposition (Weltausstellung) of 1873, was one of the first Japanese artists exhibited outside Japan. A respected painter and connoisseur, he was appointed an Imperial Household Artist (Teishitsu gigeiin).
