The Subtle Beauty of Japanese Ink Painting
September 13, 2014 - October 13, 2014

This exhibition aims to please even the most discriminating visitors with a selection of some of Japan's greatest ink landscapes from the Muromachi period (1392-1573), the peak of this genre. These scenic depictions by artistic luminaries such as Josetsu (active 15th century), Shūbun, Sesshū (1420-1506?), and Shōkei naturally draw viewers into their vast expanses or into their canorous depths. You are invited to imagine yourself as a figure within and to take a stroll through these paintings, almost all of which have been designated as National Treasures and Important Cultural Properties.
