Japanese artist returns to APSU to see lost painting

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – On a recent spring afternoon, Takuya Kanemitsu, a Tokyo-based artist and art professor, wandered through the Austin Peay State University Browning Building, looking for one of his paintings.

He finally found the massive, six-foot wide canvas on a wall next to the President’s Office, and Kanemitsu spent several quiet minutes that day reconnecting with the image of a pensive young woman surrounded by books.

“I was interested in the rhythm of the books,” he said, moving his hand slowly in front of the painting. “The composition, I thought, was interesting.”
