Art on Tuesday: Changing Years

This picture was painted by Hirezaki Eihô 鰭崎英朋 (1881-1968) and is titled Changing Years. Although this scene is slightly melancholic it is very beautiful and charming. The woman’s dressing and hair is skillfully painted. The contrasting white flowers in the background add style and elegance.  Hirezaki’s pictures of Japanese women are unique.

  1. This is one of my favorite pieces you’ve posted! There is such a subtleness in her expression that I really like, and the muted and contrasting use of color gives it a lot of depth.
