I have been impressed with Japanese Art. Especially I like old Japanese painter such as “Hokusai” and “Zyakuchu”. Not a little I seem to have received their influence .
About 2 years ago , I visited Amami island. There was a beautiful sea and great nature I’ve ever seen.
I had opportunity to visit museum of Isson Tanaka there. I had never heard his name before I visited there. He was a Japanese painter socalled “Nihonga”. He had great skill of painting.
you can see his works here.
He moved to Amami island when he was 50 years old. And he painted a nature and birds there. These painting were great. But unfortunately he was not succeed during his life.
After he died, TV show introduced his painting. Then people got know how much he was great painter.
If you have opportunity to visit Amami island , I recommend to go to this museum of Isson Tanaka.
