After spending time in museums to study the early cultures of the world, finding particular interest in their sculptures, he began collecting, remarking, ‘I somehow knew it would have a profound influence on my life. How right I was. And how happy I have been.’ Museum comparison: Compare a closely related scroll painting of a wild goose amongst reeds, by Kano Yasunobu, in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, accession number 36.100.93.
