Kurosawa - painting by Jack Coulthard

Kurosawa 1969-1970

This film-maker, Akira Kurosawa, made 'The Seven Samurai' with the same understanding of movement as the 16th Century Flemish painter Brueghel whose falling figures from the painting 'The Blind Leading the Blind' are quoted on the left. The fallen Samurai below is Mifune, the comic hero of that film.
