(First exhibited at the Ugōkai Exhibition)
At the Ugōkai, members produced works based on a common research topic for each exhibition. The topic for their twelfth exhibition was fortune and misfortune. In addition to Kyokutei Bakin (Author) and Figure on Tree Suffering from a Flood, Kiyokata also painted this work.
A Caucasian nun admonishes a young girl who has run away from home. In the background, we see the open pastureland at Sugamo in Tokyo. Kiyokata visited to this location to sketch the atmosphere of autumn for inclusion in his works.
