Suzuki Shonen was a well-known painter in Kyoto, who was known for his bold paintings. He was often compared with Shohaku for his style. This painting is a very unique piece where he illustrated the serene Japanese night scenery where the night breeze blowing over the river and the lights from fireflies created mysterious ambiance. This is very appealing especially in the hot summer days. This year commemorates 170th anniversary of his birth and 100th from his passing. Why not enjoy the cool night breeze with this piece.
