Jirō Yoshihara was a Japanese painter. In 1954, he co-founded the avant-garde Gutai group in Osaka. He worked in surrealist and abstract expressionist painting styles before turning, in his final years, to the repeated depiction of circles reminiscent of "satori," the enlightenment of Zen. This white circle was made by leaving the canvas unpainted while painting the background black.
