Shiki: The Four Seasons in Japanese Art

Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery at Scripps College
251 E. 11th St.,
Claremont, California, USA
Jan 30, 2021 To Aug 01, 2021


Detail: This exhibition of Japanese art from the Scripps College collection gathers together works featuring the most common seasonal motifs. Traditionally, these works would have been displayed in the home, used to serve food and drink or worn on the person as a way of deepening the connection between the owner and the particular season. From bamboo in the snow on a gilded folding screen to chrysanthemums on a lacquered hair comb, these seasonal references play an integral role in the cultural and emotional lives of the Japanese people.
