Description
Paulownias and Chrysanthemums, late 1700s–early 1800s, by Sakai Hōitsu

Sakai Hōitsu’s compositions tend to conform to two patterns: ink paintings often done with a modified tarashikomi (diffused ink) technique, and brilliantly colorful, daringly spare paintings set against gold or silver surfaces. Here the artist has settled on a brash, tightly focused, and gently abridged combination of familiar landscape elements whose presence is heightened by a sparse setting and dramatic alignments.
