"There are two panels by Sekido Yoshida, a
Japanese artist residing in Vancouver, possessing a charm and distinction
belonging to the older chivalry of Japan before the veneer of Western
civilization was adopted in that country and its ideals subjected to
Teutonic corruption. The work has the purity of line and the imagination
of Hokusai and a delight of coloring that is very arresting. His
treatment of the common lupine in "Flowers" (90) puts that bloom in
the garden of the gods.
