Wakaki Kafukasu Jin (Young Caucasian) by Teijiro Nakahara (1919)
The model of this painting was a young man born in Caucasus. His sharply sculpted face with bold features symbolizes the personality of the strong-willed model. The shades created by the rough touches convey the enigmatic atmosphere of the foreigner.
