The work by the prolific painter who was one of the leading artists of the Lingam School combines Wetern techniques with those of traditional ink paintings.   More than a rendering of the time honored fruit that implies “all is good,” the artist, whose popularity was at a peak in the 1930s-40s, used a dry upright pen to create weathered branches and added brightly colored inks to make the fruit pop. "Persimmon Time" is similar to a paiinting in the Nati...
