Description
Chiura Obata's mastersy of the sumi brush, and his ability to convey so much with so little, is on full display in this set of six horse studies. Distilled into the briefest of lines, we see how Obata viewed his ever-moving subject, capturing peaceful moments as quickly as they present themselves.
