This event has ended.
This exhibition showcases an excellent mixture of exuberant and rustic beauty that characterizes the arts from the Momoyama and Edo periods from the museum collection. It includes genre paintings and ukiyo-e of the early modern period, notably the celebrated Women of a Public Bathhouse* and Katsukawa Shunshō’s Three Beauties Representing Snow, the Moon and Cherry Blossoms,* as well as refined chanoyu utensils, such as Ayame, a tea bowl inspired by Sen-no-Rikyū and created by Chojiro.
