Yamanobe has long studied the effects of light in classical painting. In turn, he has become a virtuoso and master of light that he renders in his slow and meticulous work. Through his Japanese culture, delicate and patient, he neglects no aspect of his pictural work: preparation of the canvass, dilution of pigments, superposing of glazes etc. He renders exceptional atmospheres: the light of autumn, lively and malicious expressions of his characters, the tranquil beauty and transparency of his still-lives. A true delight.
