The Kano school was the most influential school of pre-modern painting in Japan, holding sway for close to 400 years, from the Muromachi period to the Edo period. Drawing upon the considerable holdings of works by Kano school artists in the Hara Rokuro Collection, this exhibition seeks to highlight their expressive charm by focusing on two major groups of hanging scrolls: Paintings used for wallpaper and Fusuma (Japanese sliding door) at Nikko-in in Mi’idera temple and Set twelve hanging scrolls by painters of the Kano school.
