Six Persimmons

June 10, 2012 § Leave a comment


I was introduced to this painting while in college. It was in an aesthetics class on Asian art. I have always loved the painting.  It is somewhat like a mental talisman that I now turn to when dealing with other examples of still life painting. I came across this odd lecture about the six persimmons a few days ago. It goes long and the speaker is a bit quirky but if you have the time you might enjoy this and learn a bit about the work of an intriguing Chinese painter from the distant past. This is a man who did not fit the conservative mold of his time.     Play Video
