poster for Commemorating the 30th Anniversary of the Yokohama Museum of Art, the 150th Anniversary of the Collector’s Birth and the 80th Anniversary of His Death  The Eye of a Connoisseur: The Legendary Hara Sankei Collection

Ends in 9 days

Born in the first year of Meiji, Hara Sankei (given name: Tomitaro; 1868-1939) was an influential Yokohama-based businessman, who primarily made his fortune in the raw-silk trade and silk-spinning industry. Hara was also an enthusiastic collector of antique art with a unique historical perspective; a man of refined tastes who broke new ground in Japanese “chanoyu” (the Way of Tea); an artist who moved and reconstructed historical buildings, created Sankeien Garden, which he opened to the public free of charge, and a talented painter, calligrapher, and classical Chinese scholar; and a patron who actively supported and cultivated promising artists of the era.

This exhibition, the largest of its kind to date, showcases Hara’s achievements in his four different roles as a collector, tea master, artist, and patron. While examining the interrelationship between these areas from a historical perspective, we present approximately 150 artworks and tea utensils from Hara’s collection, including over 30 masterpieces that have been designated as National Treasures and Important Cultural Properties, along with important documents to provide a complete picture of the man.

*Some displays will be changed during the course of the exhibition.
