Today I introduce one of my favorite Japanese artist, Hasegawa Tohaku 長谷川等伯, lived from 1539 to 1610. He was the greatest genius painter.
If you have a chance, please experience his paintings, especially simple colour ones in his later life.
The attached pictures are one of his famous works, called “松林図屏風”. It was painted more than 400 years ago but it looks extremely new. It was miracle that he painted the air by using only black colour.

When I stood in fron of his work, imagined the scene, then I could feel the breeze, the air temperature and his spirit. It was a wonderful experience as if I were to another world.
