Art on Tuesday: Torii Kiyomitsu

Torii Kiyomitsu

Woman with an umbrella in a storm. Woodblock print (ukiyo-e) by the Japanese painter Torii Kiyomitsu 鳥居清満 (1735-1785). Look at the sky, there you can see a dark cloud! The god of thunder Raijin is struggling with it, using his thunder-wheel with drums.
