"Arthur M: A Journey Through Time and Art" Step into the world of Arthur M, a collector and connoisseur of Japanese art. His vast collection spans across centuries, showcasing the beauty and diversity of traditional Japanese artwork. One piece that catches your eye is "Setsugekka/Oborozuki, " created on January 10, 1900. The delicate ink strokes and vibrant colors transport you to a snowy landscape illuminated by a hazy moonlight. Moving along, you encounter "Souvenirs of the Eastern Capital on the Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido: The Actor Onoe Baiko III as the Cat Spirit of the Old Temple. " This masterpiece from 1841 captures an actor's transformation into a mystical feline entity through intricate inkwork, vivid colors, and even brass embellishments. Next up is "Cat Of Okazaki (Okazaki Neko)" from 1893. The artist skillfully portrays a mischievous cat with playful eyes using rich hues that bring out its lively personality. In contrast to these whimsical pieces, "Kamada Matahachi" depicts raw power in action. Created around 1840, this artwork showcases Ise's legendary warrior slaying a formidable mountain cat with bold ink lines, striking colors, and embossing techniques that add depth to every stroke. As you explore further into Arthur M's collection, you stumble upon "Re Brigade. " Here Ichimura Kakitsu IV embodies Reizaburō -the Little Fox- in this captivating portrayal from August 1866. Ink dances across paper as vibrant colors breathe life into this mythical creature. Another intriguing piece is "Zen Patriarch With A Cat" dating back to 1878. It depicts an enlightened Zen master accompanied by his feline companion—a symbol of tranquility amidst chaos—rendered beautifully in meticulous brushwork and harmonious color combinations.
