Dreaming Poet 12 pages (60.6 x 45.5cm) Written by Matabei Goto

¥907,500

In the center of the painting, the poet is lying down in a relaxed position, holding a book in one hand. The book is open as he is reading, his eyes are looking off into the distance, as if lost in a daydream.

The moon and stars shine in the night sky, illuminating the silence of the night. Two small birds are depicted, one of which is perched above the poet's head, looking happy. The humid night air and the gentle scent of flowers seem to waft around them.

This work captures the poet's moment when he is immersed in the world of poetry, enveloped in the mysterious charm of the night. It is a work that stimulates the viewer's sensibilities and stirs their imagination.
