Fujishima Takeji, Sunrise Over the Eastern Sea, 1932, oil on canvas, Bridgestone Museum of Art, Tokyo, Japan


There was never a night or problem that could defeat sunrise or hope.

Bernard Williams*

Japanese artist Fujishima Takeji (1867-1943) had strong artistic ties with the West; the beauty and drama of nature was a favorite theme.  British philosopher Bernard Williams (1929-2003) wrote often about ethical and moral issues.
