This event has ended.
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.
