Art on Tuesday: Aki no otozure

20110212211509-1

This lovely picture was painted by Kaburagi Kiyokata 鏑木 清方 (1887-1972) a famous Nihonga artist, who made paintings and illustrations: mainly pictures of beautiful women. He was a leading artist and teacher of many skilled ukiyo-e painters, for example Kawase Hasui and Itô Shinsui. This picture is called 秋のおとづれ, autumn is coming. Although it is not suitable for the beginning of the summer right now, I loved the picture so much, that I choose it for today’s post.
