Styles of Calligraphy II - Succession and Originality of Beauty -

Idemitsu Museum of Arts

This event has ended.

It was after studies of Chinese calligraphic works that the tradition of cherishing calligraphy as an art form was cultivated in Japan and a distinctive framework established. Intellectuals of each distinctive time period throughout the ages have been well acquainted with “calligraphic writing,” maintaining the discipline and respecting the rules while also competing with each other to improve their skills. Such customs remain in place today and have brought about the development of many styles. This exhibition will explore how calligraphic traditions have been carried forward since the old days and demonstrate how people have sought for originality and ideal beauty. In addition, it will consider the manner in which calligraphy can be appreciated through calligraphic masterpieces from China and Japan.
