The peony is a flower that has been celebrated in Chinese - and by extension - Japanese art for centuries. Ransui brings his skill and imagination to the tradition with this vivacious rendition of two white peonies at the peak of their bloom.
This striking floral portrait is remarkable for its boldness and simplicity. It brings out the wild side of this carefully cultivated flower, yet with the delicacy of touch that characterizes all Ransui's works.
The twin blooms flourish center stage, the surrounding dance of the almost nebulous leaves taking place on a background of darkness, giving this work added depth in contrast.
One of Ransui's smaller sized works, for that special spot.
