‘Hotei Admiring the Moon’

Hotei Admiring the Moon

Shūtoku was a Zen monk-painter of the sixteenth century, influenced by Tōyō Sesshū (1420–1506). This painting, however, seems to be a late Edo interpretation of the popular Muromachi painting theme of Hotei admiring or pointing at the moon. © Metropolitan Museum of Art
