During the long history of Japanese art, a great many painters have left behind a legacy of exquisite masterpieces. The Kano painters stand out as the largest school and one whose dominance lasted more than 400 years. One of the major centerpieces of the Hara Rokuro Collection is a series of picture scrolls originally created by Kano-school artists as fusuma-e (partition paintings) for the Nikko-in guest hall at Mi’idera (Onjoji) temple. Japanese art evolved through contact with the culture of continental China, with the influence of one Qing dynasty painter, Shen Nanping, having a particularly deep effect on many Japanese painters, such as Okyo Maruyama and Kokan Shiba. Kokan, who also researched Western-style painting and the use of oil paints, was a forerunner of modern painting in Japan. The richness of expression by this varied group of masters awaits you.
