Color on silk,
illustrated in the sale catalogue of Miyatake family in Aki at Kyoto Bijutsu Club on 22 October,1932,
illustrated in the sale catalogue of Sei family in Uwajima at Osaka Bijutsu Club

This piece is an elegant manifestation of the qualities Okamoto's work is best known for; a realistic and detailed aesthetic, reminiscent of the Nagasaki school, and a colorful ornateness. This work depicts a quail with brilliant feathers, juxtaposing a simple background that enhances the sheer detail of the subject in the foreground. Befitting the coming season, this work is a beautiful reflection of autumn in its maturity.
