THE ART OF TRANQUILITY

THROUGH AN ARTIST’S EYES

 

Have you ever reflected on the beauty of Japanese fans? Arranged below in an exquisite quintet created by Hokusai (1760-1849), a master of ukiyo-e (translation: pictures from The Floating World). With colors fresh and lines precise, they seem to almost move within the composition, reminding us of the graceful dancers who might have once held them.

Are you feeling a sense of harmony and contentment yet? Two more days remain of The Art of Tranquility week while I’m away…..
