poster for Paintings of Flora and Fauna from the Museum Collection

This event has ended.

This style of painting that celebrates nature was originally developed as one of the major genres in China at the end of the Tang Dynasty. In China, the approach towards the motifs was objective and they were realistically portrayed, whereas in Japan, particularly in the modern age, they were idealized along with the four seasons and portrayed in an ornamental way, becoming very popular in the West.

久しぶりに行ってみた。
中国の清や明時代の花鳥画、日本の狩野派の作品がそれぞれの雰囲気を出してたのに加えて、ここが醸し出すなんとなく軽い厳かな感じが作品をより引き立ててる感じがする。
アカデミックに展開される展示はいつも勉強になる。
今回は主に狩野派だったけど、大観も含め絵師(画家)たちの画面構成とか構図とか、日本画家?のセンスのよさが、かっこよすぎてため息。
