"The end of the summer is always a disappointing time for me, but experiencing Takahashi's End of Summer is the complete opposite. It has a warmth, a natural glow and flow that are captivating. Passages of color overlap and overflow as a reminder that time changes continuously and effortlessly, and summer will come again. This piece was made in 1947 but feels like it was made yesterday. The freshness of the color and ink on paper, the timelessness of the woodblock technique all relate to the universality of this feeling, this yearly transition that we're all seeking to understand and endure across decades."
