Kazuo Shiraga: Looking Beyond the Brush

Paris | 4 December

In this episode of Expert Voices, Chairman Amy Cappellazzo and Senior Director Yuki Terase discuss the groundbreaking abstraction of Kazuo Shiraga’s masterpiece Tentaisei Soushiko. "I wanted to paint as if it was a fight. Until I fell down from exhaustion”, Shiraga once remarked, and this total involvement of mind and body are especially palpable in Tentaisei Soushiko. Part of the artist's esteemed Water Margin series, this outstanding work will be offered as a highlight of Sotheby’s Art Contemporain Evening Sale. (Paris|4 December)
