Wind Blowing Hill 10F (53 x 45.5cm) by Akira Nakashima


The painting depicts a woman standing on top of a hill.

The wind is blowing on the hill, and her hair is blowing in the wind. She looks melancholy and seems to be staring somewhere into the distance.

This work can be said to be a deeply moving work, as the overall landscape and the strength of the wind emphasize the woman's sense of loneliness, visually expressing her inner feelings.
