Idemitsu Museum of Arts
9th Floor, Teigeki Bldg., 3-1-1,Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku,
Jan 07, 2023 To Feb 12, 2023
Detail: The works collected by American collectors of Japanese art, Etsuko and Joe Price (Price Foundation) have been added to the Museum’s collection. This exhibition features works by Itō Jakuchū (1716-1800) and Maruyama Ōkyo (1733-95) who vividly colored the Kyoto art world in the 18th century as well as paintings by Sakai Hōitsu (1761-1828) who led the Edo Rimpa school. The exhibition will be held in two parts. The Edo period was a time of great prosperity in the history of Japanese painting with these prominent painters competing against each other. We hope you will enjoy the brilliant world of the gorgeous paintings by the master artists of the time.
