This event has ended.

The art of Rimpa was born in 17th century Kyoto. In the 19th century Sakai Hoitsu, born the second son of the Himeji domain lord Sakai Utanokami, moved to Edo and influenced the movement. His student Suzuki Kiitsu added further refinement to its style, marking the establishment of “Edo Rimpa.” This exhibition explores the appeal of Edo Rimpa, which took the essence of aristocratic Kyoto Rimpa and transformed it to an updated Edo aesthetic.
