Fuyugi (Winter Wear)

Takeuchi Seihō (Japanese, 1864-1942)


冬着

Deftly applied strokes of lighter ink with a few zigzag lines capture the thick rice straw wrappings that protect the trees. Depicting the bare tree itself takes only about a dozen ink strokes, and the solitary crow markedly fewer.

Undoubtedly swiftly executed, the scene is amply filled with the atmosphere of a bitingly crisp late autumn or early winter’s day.

Mr. and Mrs. Robert Shula; given to the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 1988
