poster for Reading Nihonga Through Color ― Kaii’s Blue and Genso’s Red

This event has ended.

Kaii’ Higashiyama’s “End of the Year,” presenting a tranquil scene of Kyoto in falling snow in blue and Genso Okuda’s “Oirase Ravine: Autumn,” the autumn foliage in red, are joined by about fifty other paintings by Nihonga artists, including Seiho Takeuchi and Togyu Okumura, who used color effectively. How did they make use of color in their work as they established their own art? This exhibition introduces the artists’ own words and examines their social contexts to follow the paths they took, as revealed through color.
