    Images and media

    The upright format of the watercolour, the water mirror that leads the eye diagonally into the image, and the water plants in the foreground, reminds us of a Japanese woodcut. Zorn was part of a group of artists who collected Japanese objects and were captivated by their lyrical perspective of nature.
