Kakunen Tsuruoka


untitled (mesquite with mist lingering on brush)

watercolor on paper, with artist's seal Kaku at lower right, ca. 1942-44

15 by 22 in., 38.2 by 56 cm

A twisting mesquite reaches into the composition from the right as morning mist transforms the hard edges of desert grasses and brush into feathery grey tufts disappearing into the soft morning sky with a streak of yellow and red breaking on the horizon.
