Day 100a- the day begins with art

So, I am taking a course on Nature in Japanese Art and as part of my research I was able to view a 16th century Japanese Zen Buddhist ink painting screen in the collection at the Art Institute of Chicago. It was a great experience to view the piece in storage and have a chance to speak with the staff about it, other Japanese artworks, and art in general. 

Below are a few of my favorite close-ups, along with a link to information on the museum’s website here: left panel right panel
