A tiger standing against the wind. The artist is Hayashi Jikko, a Nanga style artist from Mito. He is known as one of the artist with unorthodox style, just as Ito Jakuchu, Soga Shohaku and Nagasawa Rosetsu. Jikko studied under Tachihara Suiken, but he mostly taught himself and developed his own style. The result is his unique animal paintings. Captivating and dynamic, his paintings grab viewer's heart.
