Arts Everyday Living: A Prelude to Easter—The Spiritual Garden of the Lilies

Kuroda Seiki, Easter Lilies, 1909, oil on canvas, Ishibashi Museum of Art, Kurume, Fukuoka, Japan

Japanese artist Kuroda Seiki (1866-1924) was influenced by both the artistic traditions of his native country as well as Western styles such as Impressionism. His interpretation of lilies is unique, representing the elegant flowers in a natural setting rather than displayed in the more standard vase.
