Atmosphere in Japanese Painting
In the Japanese language, there are about 50 words for rain, but also an equivalent surfeit of terms for snow, mist, and fog. In winter, Japan’s weather is dominated by a cold air mass from Siberia, which transfers moisture from the ocean, bringing heavy snow to the Japan Alps and lighter snow elsewhere. ...

Finding Form
Line by line and layer by layer, artists conjure three-dimensional worlds from two-dimensional sheets of paper.
