Sesshu's Long Sroll is the masterwork of the 15th-century Japanese artist, Susshu-considered by many Japanese to be their greatest. Famed not only as a painter but also as a Zen priest and a great traveler, Sesshu found inspiration for his wonderful landscapes both in China and Japan. This magnificent scroll, which pictures the procession of the seasons, is essentially religious painting with a strong atmosphere of Zen Buddhism. Nature, rather than man, is dominant, although the human touch is charmingly evident from time to time. One can take this fascinating Zen landscape journey again and again, and always find new delights.
