17th Century Japanese Art

I sincerely hope that you can just sit back and slowly savor the unbelievable magnificence of these Japanese screens. The color choices so Japanese that you can see their culture seeping though. But look at the structure. The compositions are perfect. Let’s put this in terms of music: How about equating this to Charlie Byrd’s magnificent Brazilian guitar compositions of the mid-60’s, or just about anything by Kenny Burrell; or Beethoven; or Mozart, or whatever piece of music leaves you knowing that you’ve just heard something that could’ve only come from someone knowing what it really feels like to be in touch with their soul.
