El templo de Kinryūzan en Asakusa (浅草金龍山 Asakusa Kinryūzan) - Utagawa Hiroshige
"Kurosawa has the ability to bring things out of you that you never knew were there. It is enormously difficult work, but each picture with him is a revelation. When you see his films, you find them full realizations of ideas, of emotions, of a philosophy which surprises with its strength, even shocks with its power. You had not expected to be so moved, to find within your own self this depth of understanding."
— Toshiro Mifune on Akira Kurosawa

Lilla vågen / Little wave, Evert Lundquist. (1904 - 1994)
Expressive brush technique and thick paint application give life to this pensive depiction of Saint Bartholomew. His martyrdom is subtly suggested by the knife in his right hand.
Made just eight years before Rembrandt’s death, this representation of the Saint gives a tangible human quality to a religious character.
St. Bartholomew, 1661, Rembrandt van Rijn. J. Paul Getty Museum.
