Image: Hokusai, Fisherman (19th Century). Ink and color on silk.
Last weekend for our art posting we focused on the famous Japanese artist Hokusai (whose name at birth was Tokitarō), who is the subject of an exhibit at the Freer Gallery of Art at the Smithsonian. This week we dip back into that exhibit for another painting. We chose The Fisherman because we are going to be taking a couple weeks off, so this is our version of hanging out the Gone Fishin’ sign.
While we’re away we hope you will dip your line into our dining guide and explore a little of the D.C. restaurant scene. With the rise of the Delta Variant, the spring of hope now has storm clouds. Our guidance of last year still holds: if you want to be able to visit a restaurant when this is over, then you need to throw money at them now.
