Samurai: Beyond the Sword
Discover the artist behind the armor. Samurai: Beyond the Sword explores artworks that project the image of the samurai not only as fierce warriors but also as patrons of the arts and sophisticated artists and scholars. See the exhibition beginning March 9 at the DIA.
Flowers in a Glass Vase, 1704
“I find this painting amazing in its detail and composition; every time I view it, I find something I haven't noticed before. And the colors are rich and the flowers are incredibly vibrant! The fact that it was painted by a woman at a time when men so completely dominated the art world only adds to this painting's uniqueness. ”
