"Bokuhō: The Art of Ink Masterpieces Selected from the Tokiwayama Bunko Foundation" Exhibition
This event has ended.
The industrialist and art collector Sugahara Tsûsai (1894–1943) established the Tokiwayama Bunko Foundation in 1943. This collection, built over more than sixty years, is rich in ink masterpieces, including both Zen calligraphy and ink paintings. The majority of these works were either brought to Japan by the Zen priests who traveled between China and Japan from the mid 13th century onwards, or are comprised of those works created in Japan under the influence of these imported works.
This exhibition focuses on these ink treasures from the Tokiwayama Bunko collection, with the addition of some never before displayed decorative arts, plus special display items from the Seikado Bunko Art Museum and the Nezu Museum collections, in its introduction of the reception of Chinese culture during Japan’s medieval period.
