poster for 270th Anniversary of the Birth of Matsudaira Fumai: The Esthetics of Cha no Yu

Ends in 22 days

*【Important Announcement】The Museum will temporally close from April 27.

The practice of drinking tea was introduced to Japan with Zen Buddhism during the Kamakura period. It formed into a tea culture in Japan over the Muromachi, Momoyama and Edo periods, reflecting Japanese esthetics of wabi and sabi. As the art of tea ceremony, or cha no yu, developed, many art pieces were appreciated and utilized for the practice. This exhibition will display masterpieces selected from the Idemitsu collection, from the viewpoint of cha no yu. With items of arts and crafts, ranging from calligraphy, paintings, to ceramics such as karamono and raku tea bowls that Japanese cherished, it will introduce the variety of art related to cha no yu.
