Art on Tuesday: Snow

hokusai_snow

This snow beauty was painted by the most famous ukiyo-e artist Hokusai Katsushika 葛飾 北斎 (1760-1849) known from Japan. The elegant Japanese lady is walking through heavy snow. It has recently stopped to fall down, as one can see some snow is left on the umbrella and on the wooden shoe. She is feeling cold, although she is wearing multiple layers with different colors and patterns.  Her hands are covered in her kimono sleeves. The whole scene is presented in light colors reflected by the snow.
