This L-shaped composition uses soft yet bright colors to depict a curving road through rolling green mountains covered with the varing red tones of autumn trees.  A solitary figure sits in a pavillion, and the scene is obscured by wisps of white clouds.

A country scene with swirls of color all around. There are two distant reddish-colored buildings ibehind a fence that runs along the left side of the dirt path, which recedes to a vanishing point at the center of the work. Trees line the right-hand side of the dirth path. Two people in the lower right corner appear to be working; one stands straight, while the other bends over.

Gift of Gilbert M. Frimet
1983/2.232
<em>&quot;Lonely Fisherman at Autumn River</em>&nbsp;is oriented horizontally to provide the breadth of the river and emphasizes the softness of the mountains&rsquo; width as opposed to an imposing verticality...The main visual cue of the season in the piece is the seasonal poem of autumn, followed to the left by Itsuun&rsquo;s signature and seal in red in the upper right-hand corner.&nbsp; A more subtle suggestion of autumn are the birds in a migratory formation just above the surface of the lake...&nbsp;The only separation between the sky and the river in the painting is the tall tree just to the right of the center of the painting that provides a focal point, but even then, the void of the water&rsquo;s surface leaks into the edge of the mountain, and even lies within the outlines of the village...&quot;<br />

This six-fold screen, a half of a pair, is meant to represent six of the twelve months of the year, with keen attention paid to the birds and flowers associated with each. Although this screen bears Kano Tan&rsquo;yu&rsquo;s signature, it was probably created by his studio or by followers working in this famous artist&rsquo;s style.
