Sep 12 - Nov 8

Abeno Harukas Art Museum

This exhibit highlights the master artists of Japan’s Edo Period (1603-1868). The Edo Period was a time of relative peace and prosperity, and with the country’s borders shut to the outside world, the country’s artists were prompted to look for sources of inspiration closer to home. This era produced a number of avant-garde artists, including Ito Jakuchu, Nagasawa Rosetsu and Soga Shohaku, whose works of abstract, radical monochrome ink painting have become widely appreciated in recent years. The exhibit also showcases the work of Rinpa School pioneer Tawaraya Sotatsu, Maruyama Okyo and Katsushika Hokusai, whose print The Great Wave off Kanagawa is perhaps the most widely-recognized piece of Japanese art. Works from a total of 35 painters and printmakers are exhibited.
