Moonlit Evening1913 182.6×99.7 cm
A fisherman and his children hurrying down the road home are bathed in the light of the moon on an autumn evening.
The painting shows a peaceful view of nature and can be said to bring together very nicely Gyokudo Kawai's gentle disposition.
It is a work filled with pastoral mood.
Spring Drizzle1942 44.5×56.8 cm
A lady walking along a path between a water mill and thicket in a spring shower. The artist, said to feel the expanse of the universe at the sound of a single droplet on a split bamboo pipe, wonderfully expresses his sentiments through koroku and mokkotsu techniques, which appeals to the Japanese sensibility.
