Professor Paul Berry workshop objects

Professor Paul Berry workshop objects


These objects are to be the object of study and discussion in a workshop (Wednesday, November 29) on Edo-period painting and connoisseurship, led by visiting scholar Professor Paul Berry.

This hanging scroll depicts three white chrysanthemums. The flowers form a dynamic arc, and were executed with powerful, rapid brushstrokes. The contrast between the thin lines of the petals of the flowers and the dark thick strokes made with the side of the brush suggesting the leaves and stalks of the plants creates the main visual drama of the painting.

This hanging scroll depicts a bearded figure in billowing robes standing on a sword on the waves of a river.

An inscription is placed on the upper right corner.

In this hanging scroll, Rosetsu depicts an owl perched on a rock in front of a large moon hanging low in the sky. The soft washes and quick brushstrokes used in the image create an overall sense of airiness, but maintain a clear sense of naturalism in depicting the owl's anatomy.
