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.
