Special Exhibition

Tosa and Sumiyoshi Schools II —The Development of the Yamatoe Painting Style and the Outstanding Characteristic of Each School

September 12 (Sun.), 2021 – November 7 (Sun.)

As a sequel to the 2018 exhibition “Tosa and Sumiyoshi Schools—The Lightness and Solemnity in Yamatoe Paintings,” this exhibition will be held to introduce the progression of Yamatoe paintings over the entire Edo Period, once again featuring these two schools. It will first focus on the development of this particular style of the time to provide an outline, and then investigate how these schools embraced and inherited the traditional Yamatoe style while surrounded by active artists from other schools, such as Kano, Maruyama, Shijo, Bunjinga and Rin. It will also attempt to examine the roles of the artists of these schools and how both contributed so much to art history. With this exhibition, we hope to encourage the world to recognize the amazing works of the Yamatoe Schools, which have, up to now, been considered a rather minor part of Edo art history.
