Ends in 4 days

This exhibition looks mainly at the work of three painters who were active during the period from the Momoyama era to the Edo era. Kano Eitoku (1543-90) is credited with many of the magnificent paintings that adorned fusuma sliding doors and other large-scale partitions during the Momoyama era. Kano Tan’yu (1602-74), Eitoku’s grandson, continued the Kano tradition as a painter in the service of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Ink paintings by these two masters are contrasted with the work of Maruyama Okyo (1733-95), the progenitor of a school of naturalistic painting in Japan which emphasized the real-life sketching of landscapes and people. On exhibit will be Okyo’s vibrantly colored scroll painting Landscape of Yodo River as well as the original sketch on which it was based.
