This event has ended.

2015 marks the four-hundredth anniversary of the founding of an art colony north of Kyoto by Hon’ami Koetsu, the founding father of the Rimpa school. To commemorate that significant event in Rimpa history, the Yamatane Museum of Art is holding an exhibition focusing on the Rimpa school and Rimpa-related aesthetics. This exhibition presents works on subjects unique to the Rimpa school by Sotatsu, Korin, Ogata Kenzan, Sakai Hoitsu, Suzuki Kiitsu with a distinctive sense of the seasons. It also includes characteristically Rimpa-style works by modern and contemporary Nihonga artists who have studied the Rimpa school and emulated it in their work. They are accompanied by works that convey a sense of the moods of autumn, often found in Rimpa paintings.
