New Araki Minol Paintings at Joan B Mirviss LTD

Araki Minol (1928-2010), Fire Island, 1992, ink and colors on paper, 15 3/4 x 18 1/2 in.

Joan B Mirviss LTD is delighted to offer two new landscape paintings by Araki Minol to collectors. These have never been shown in public and the original colors, as the artist intended, are perfectly preserved.

An industrial designer and ink painter, Araki Minol was a fascinating hybrid figure who bridged many worlds. As a Japanese artist born in northeast China, he was influenced by traditional Chinese painting–from Bada Shanren (ca. 1626–1705) to Zhang Daqian (1899–1983)–and by the Japanese painting movements of his time and even later, by contemporary American art. His work has been featured in two major museum retrospective exhibitions in the US: at the Minneapolis Institute of Art in 2017, and at Phoenix Art Museum in 1999.
