Hakuin Ekaku (1686-1769) was a Zen master and artist who is known for his use of art as a means of conveying spiritual teachings and messages. He was one of the most influential figures in Zen Buddhism during the Edo period in Japan, and is credited with revitalizing the Rinzai school of Zen through his emphasis on the practice of koans and the cultivation of a direct, intuitive understanding of the nature of reality.
The painting in question is an example of Hakuin's later style, which is characterized by thickly brushed, gray-to-black-toned calligraphy, which is typical of his later years. The image of Bodhidharma (in Japanese, Daruma), the founder of Zen Buddhism, is bold, simple and strong. The painting is a representation of the deep connection and reverence Hakuin had for Bodhidharma as the founder of Zen Buddhism.
