This event has ended.

Were you aware that the masterpiece of Hoitsu Sakai’s later years, “Flowering Plants of Summer and Autumn,” was actually painted on the rear-side of a folding screen per a request Hoitsu received? The screen was painted by a master painter whom Hoitsu had long admired and considered to be his painting mentor. What sentiment did Hoitsu wish to convey by painting Flowering Plants of Summer and Autumn on the rear of this byobu screen? We’ll use virtual reality to explore the secrets concealed in how the rear of the screen relates to the front.
