Tohaku’s Transformation: The Evolution of Techniques and Style in the 16th Century Master
One of the most impressive characteristics of Hasegawa Tohaku's artistry was his unparalleled ability to master so many different styles of painting, mediums and techniques. Throughout his career he painted scrolls, decorated sliding doors (fusuma), and freestanding multipanel screens (byobu); Buddhist icons and portraits, as well as bird-and-flower paintings, and landscapes in ink-and-wash, polychrome, and gilt. His proficiency in the complex techniques for combining colors with gold, possibly learned from members of the Tosa and Kano schools is particularly awestriking.
