Displaying exemplary works from painting schools that arose in Japan in the 17th and 18th centuries, this exhibition allows viewers to discover how Japanese painting evolved from the traditional modes of Chinese and Japanese (Yamato-e) styles that had prevailed through medieval times. More than 90 paintings - including 12 sets of folding screens and a number of hanging scrolls - will be exhibited in two rotations, each consisting of approximately 45 paintings. Rather than focus on the orthodox output of the Tosa and Kano ateliers, which dominated artistic production in the late medieval period, The Flowering of Edo Period Painting will highlight the new, exuberant styles of the Rinpa, Nanga, Maruyama-Shijo, and Ukiyo-e schools, as well as independent painters of the Edo period.
Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
