Ninsei and Kenzan – Kyoto Pottery and Painting
This event has ended.
Ninsei Nonomura and Kenzan Ogata were two important ceramics artists during the Edo period. The former perfected the Kyoto Kyoyaki style of painting in color on fired ceramics, creating masterpieces of beautiful form and color favored by nobility and daimyos. The latter, brother of painter Korin Ogata, produced painted dishes combining the arts of painting and pottery, carrying on the torch of Kyoyaki tradition from Ninsei Nonomura. Ceramics by these two artists from the Okada Museum of Art collection, including Important Cultural Properties, are displayed along with paintings by Korin Ogata and Jakuchu Ito.
