Images from the Exhibit
This feature exhibition highlights some of the finest works of art newly acquired by the Kyoto National Museum between January 2010 and March 2017. The public display of these hitherto unseen treasures was long delayed due to the construction of the Heisei Chishinkan Wing. This is the first exhibition of new acquisitions in seven years, and we think it will have been worth the wait!
The diverse variety of masterworks on view include the 7th century Tang dynasty National Treasure calligraphy Book of Han, Biography of Yang Xiong, Vol. 57 and Square Dishes with the Chinese Monk Poets Hanshan (Kanzan) and Shide (Jittoku), produced jointly by Ogata Kōrin (1658–1716) and his brother Kenzan (1663–1743).
