The continuous mountains are shrouded in fog, and the waterfall flows down along the bush of the trees. The big pine tree grows from the slope towers in stoutness like the Holy Ghost.
Sankyouseishin, which was painted the pure morning of the deep mountain, was painted when Higashiyama Kaii was 76 years old, his mature age. It is a masterpiece that soaks into the mind, and symbolizes "Higashiyama Art" that he had explored nature with pure, steady eyes and devout feelings.
"People feel Japanese nature in Higashiyama's landscape painting and are consoled. Someday, Higashiyama's artworks will be regarded as Japanese beautiful soul, and he will be respected as the favorite painter by all Japanese", written by Yasunari Kawabata who won the Nobel Prize for Literature.
