March 13 2007 Art Appreciation Newsletter


One familiar Japanese woodblock print to most is "The Great Wave Off Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849). In my article, "Great Wave Tsunami in Asian Art," I spoke about that particular print as part of a series, "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji"(1831).

On exhibit at Price Tower Arts Center in Bartlesville, Oklahoma is "Tokyo: Imperial Capital" displaying woodblock prints by Koizumi Kishio.

On September 1, 1923, a devastating earthquake shook Tokyo and eastern Japan. A vigorous campaign was launched to restore the city and tranform it into Japan's imperial capital. Koizumi Kishio was one of the artists who captured the drama of the rebirth.

He created one hundred pictures of Tokyo, commemorating not only the earthquake, but also celebrating Tokyo's new found modernity as a city rebuilt. A selction of Kishio's prints will be on display at Frank Lloyd Wright's Price Tower Arts Center. This is the final stop on its tour of the U.S.

Light as Art - The Light Artists - Sean Scully
The 17th century Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer is the true 'Painter of Light' but there is a new breed of 'Light Artists' who use light as their medium. I will discuss artists Sean Scully and John Crowley, and Light186, a company creating illuminated art & design.
