The Greatest Eccentricity: Realism in Japanese Art

poster for The Greatest Eccentricity: Realism in Japanese Art

This event has ended.

First widely adopted in Japan around the time of the Meiji Restoration, Western Realism has become an artistic basis for Japanese painting and crafts. This does not mean there were no artists pursing Realist expressions during earlier periods, however. This exhibition introduces Edo-period artists such as Okyo Maruyama, Kokan Shiba, and Sosen Mori who sought out novel true-to-life approaches. These artists are known for the “eccentricity” of their works, and this show provokes thought on the many meanings of “real.” Some displays will be alternated during the exhibition period.
