Art on Tuesday: Falling Blossoms

hirezaki_eiho

Hirezaki Eihô  鰭崎英朋 (1881-1968)  painted this woodblock print of a Japanese woman. A modern looking kimono with abstract emblems combined with motifs from nature.  It shows a tree, whereas the falling blossoms are real, which goes together beautifully. The colors are light and the contrast of the green and red is charming.
