Tanomura Chokunyu | Painting
Ninety-two years old Tanomura Chokunyu sat down, dipped his brush in ink and wrote this onto the mounting of a painting by Hara Zaishu (1750-1837).
“This painting’s quiet atmosphere gives me the impression of both blue flowers and autumn moon. I see the place and know its name. On an autumn day of September, Gashin-do, 92 years old Chokunyu Dojin Denchi”
