Art on Tuesday: Beauty with Flowers


This picture was made by Itô Shinsui (1898-1972) in 1910. He is so very skilled in painting people. This young woman’s expression is very graceful. The first impression is, that Itô made only a schematic picture, but if you look closer you can see, he added green flowers on the kimono and the pattern of the obi is decorated with various motifs. White flower leaves are blowing in the wind. The woman is slightly feeling cold as she is covering her fingers.
