Description
Chiura Obata (American, b. Japan, 1885–1975) came to the United States in 1903. He never abandoned the tools and teachings of his native Japan. He worked with ink and watercolor and made block prints, and he wrote spare, image-filled poetry, combining the ideals of his homeland with the energy of his adopted West, particularly the mountains of California.
Obata followed the Zen Buddhist principle of kiin-seido, or “living moment,” in the immediate, intuitive expression of his subjects’ essential nature.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
Evening Glow at Yosemite Waterfall, Yosemite National Park, California, 1930
Upper Lyell Fork, Near Lyell Glacier, High Sierra, California, 1930
