Sumi and color on paper. This hanging scroll by Fukuda Kodojin is a fine example of the Japanese nan-ga style of painting. Compared with other works by Kodojin, this piece displays a distinctively vibrant and richly toned color palate. Kodojin, or “Old Taoist” is remembered today—apart from his great skill as a poet and painter—as being one of the last in a line of great literati artists in Japan. While he lived a quiet and reflective life of devoted study, his poetry and paintings tended to be infused with dramatic imagery and unconventional stylistic forms.
