This painting on canvas is inspired by the long and respected tradition of Japanese woodcuts and landscape painting. This style was different to its western counterparts in the arrangements of the various parts of the painting, and in the way that it utilized scale and proportion. Japanese prints and paintings became highly popular and influential throughout the western world, and their style flourished as artists from different cultures adopted their principles and ideas. In this painting, two birds are playing together in the safety of a secluded garden. The composition is free and expansive, to show the implied movement of the birds as they swoop and fly around the canvas. A rock on the right hand side roots the scene to the earth, preventing the scene from becoming too dreamlike and asking the viewer to look upon the simple flights and playfulness of the birds as charming in itself. The deep reds contrast with the tinted yellow flowers, and the gold foil helps the blue of the bird’s feathers to leap off the page.
