The Old Plum by Kano Sansetsu

The Old Plum by Kano Sansetsu
Japan, Edo period, ca. 1645

The massive black trunk of an ancient plum tree with bending, twisting branches spans nearly sixteen feet across four gold-leafed sliding panels. The downward thrust of its principal branch is echoed by the parallel reverse movement of two young shoots. Supported on both sides by vertical and horizontal expanses of rock, the old reptilian tree sprouts blossoms, which convey the atmosphere of a cold, early spring and symbolize birth and renewal.
These panels originally formed one wall of a room in the Tensho-in, a subtemple of Myoshin-ji, a Zen temple in Kyoto. During the 1880s, they were sold to a private owner and trimmed at the top to conform to the dimensions of the new owner’s home. On the reverse, which formed a wall in the adjacent room, was a composition depicting the Chinese theme of the Eight Daoist Immortals. This was later separated and remounted. It is now in the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
This remarkable painting bears no signature or seal, but the exaggerated bends of the tree and the cubelike crispness of the geometric rocks are idiosyncrasies associated with the signed works of Kano Sansetsu (1589/90–1651). Sansetsu was a pupil and son-in-law of Kano Sanraku (1559–1635), an artist who enjoyed the generous patronage of monks at Myoshin-ji. Sanraku and his adopted heir worked together to decorate rooms in the Tenkyü-in, another Myoshin-ji subtemple, in 1630. Sansetsu must have received the monks’ continued support after the death of his father-in-law. The Tensho-in was constructed in 1647, the year in which Sansetsu was granted the honorary title of "hokkyo." He was then fifty-eight years old, and these screens reveal the eccentric and abstract tendencies that characterize his later works.

It’s notable that the famous Cancer woman and Aquarius man relationships I found are from a time when gender relationships were more clear-cut, a la Mad Men. A time when the woman ruled the roost, and the man went out and made his mark.

Early Cancer (June 22) Anne Morrow Lindbergh, author of my own Cancer Mom’s favorite little book of inspiration, Gift from the Sea found love with an Aquarian aviator. On flying with husband Charles Lindbergh, she said, “Those fields of daisies we landed on, and dusty fields and desert stretches. Memories of many skies and earths beneath us – many days, many nights of stars.”

Another famous Cancer-Aquarius couple from an earlier generation, President Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan, (notoriously) had their very own astrologer. We see the funny romantic side of an Aquarian man in I Love You, Ronnie: The Letters of Ronald Reagan to Nancy Reagan. He obviously delights in finding ways to express his love, signing one, Your In Luv Guv. We find out he called her Mommie (Cancer is the Mother sign) and refers to himself in the 3rd person, with clever words true to his air sign “type.” “It is true sometimes that Mr. Reagan loses his temper and slams a door but that’s because he can’t cry or stamp his foot–(he isn’t really the type.) But mad or glad Mr. Reagan is head over heels in love with Mrs. Reagan and can’t even imagine a world without her–He loves her, Mr. Reagan.”

This love match has a high degree of difficulty, with air and water natures that couldn’t be more different. It’s a loony match that goes far when there’s big respect and friendship for the other, as an individual.
