She was gazing at a woodblock print of an evening water scene by Tsuichiya Koitsu (1879–1949) and was lost in it for a moment. Her face and eyes softened as she described the effect the image has on her, “And then you feel night falling with the last light of the sun touching the edge of the clouds.”

Judith Mabary’s impression of Prague, when she arrived there 15 years ago, was that it was gray.
