Description:
Sumi-e, or ink and brush painting, must be discussed in terms of the religion and philosophy it expresses. Originating in China, sumi-e was the art of Zen priests, by whom it was introduced into and practiced in Japan. Sumi-e is thus an expression of Zen Buddhism, a religion of extreme selfdiscipline, concentration, detachment, and contemplation.
