Nostalgia (Boston)

Saitô Kiyoshi

The scene shows a group of buildings with white colored rooftops. Two buildings rise up in the foreground on the right and left. The right building has a red side with vertical lines hashed into it. The left building has two white triangles on its roof. In the middle ground is a smaller building with a green-domed tower rising up the middle of the composition. A small red figure stands on the white ground to the right of this tower. The background shows the large white rooftop of another building, with small dark rooflines of buildings visible behind it.

Snow Scene in Ueno Park

Takahashi Hiroaki

Snow falls during a night scene in Ueno Park, located in the Tokyo area. Weary, snow-heavy travelers trek through the scene. One may be heading into a shop to have something warm to eat, while the other heads towards a small bridge and a red torii gate topped with snow. A pine tree arches in from the left corner and arches over the scene, framing the park against the gray, snow-dotted sky.

Dorje Legpa Votive Plaque

Artist Unknown, Tibet or Nepal

A bas-relief carving made of bone and in the shape of a lotus petal, depicting Pehar, a guardian of the Tibetan Buddhist faith, in wrathful form. At the base of the "petal" are the tops of mountains, with the waves of the sea visible between them; in the rounded part of the "petal," a border of flames encircles a dynamic image of Pehar, his garments flowing in the wind as he rides on a snow lion. The background behind Pehar is incised with closely spaced wavy lines, again suggesting flames.

Muan Xingtao (Muan Hsing-t'ao, J. Mokuan)

The large character for snow in block script is juxtaposed with lines of smaller characters in running script. The large character is drawn with unhurried, thick, even strokes in dense, unbroken black ink with blunt contours, while the smaller characters are brushed rapidly, with strokes of varying thickness, a pronounced diagonal tilt, and sharp edges.

This six-fold screen, a half of a pair, is meant to represent six of the twelve months of the year, with keen attention paid to the birds and flowers associated with each. Although this screen bears Kano Tan’yu’s signature, it was probably created by his studio or by followers working in this famous artist’s style.
