Object Description
On an autumn outing, this boy holds tightly to his balloon string and his mother's fingers. He looks straight out at the viewer, and his smiling face suggests he could be a real handful. His mother has a firm grip on him, though, as she enjoys the falling leaves. Both wear multi-layered fashionable clothes, appropriate to the changing weather, and her black outer robe is delicately textured with a woven pattern that shimmers as one holds the print. This black on black pattern is realistically distorted to indicate the contours of her arms and legs. In the background is a cup and other tea house paraphernalia.

For more information, please refer to the Chikanobu exhibition catalogue.
