And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Tsuchiya Koitsu (Japanese, 1870-1949) Snow at Nezu Shrine (Woman in Snow), 1934
This reminds me of the album "Snowflakes Are Dancing" by Isao Tomita. Worth the listen.ReplyDelete
It has more eye appeal than Hunter Biden's masterpiecesReplyDelete
Totally agree with you - this is real art. Hunter's work is, well, crap.Delete
Very stylized, it's like something you would see in graphic novels.ReplyDelete
The Meiji and Taisho eras had a profound effect on Japanese art- the western influence of the Arts and Crafts movement, Art Nouveau and later Art Deco injected a fresh way of looking at things- the woodblocks prints from the early 1800's were very different from the early 1900's.ReplyDelete
