fun in the studies

Reading about Jakuchu, who was said to be a person who didnot like women, pleasure, lived his whole life without marriage, only closed to a priest, and sometimes just run to somewhere in the mountain for two years.
every thread made me wonder: if he is gay. unlucky for him, born in a period that he couldn’t claim and unlucky for art historians who have to struggle for other reasons to explain his oddness.
crazy as me, saw the close dates of both Jakuchu and Daiten’s dates of birth and death, en…a Shakespear bittersweet tragedy.
ps. Jakuchu’s works are fabulous. I mean, fabulous, wonderful imagination. He sees things differently and conceives this world differently.
