Description
Ink and Gold explores the stunning artistry of the esteemed Kano painters, the most enduring and influential school of painting in Japanese history. Established in the late fifteenth century, the Kano lineage of artists served as painters-in-attendance to Japan’s powerful shoguns for four hundred years. The exhibition presents more than 120 works of art spanning the school’s long and illustrious history, including large-scale, gold leaf folding screens and sliding doors as well as ink paintings, hanging scrolls, and folding fans. Ink and Gold is the first outside Japan—and the first anywhere since 1979—to so fully examine the Kano painters’ legacy. Due to their light sensitivity, works in the exhibition will be presented in three rotations, offering multiple opportunities to experience the full depth, scope, and variety of the Kano painters’ remarkable achievements. The rotation schedule is February 16–March 15, March 18–April 12, and April 15–May 10, 2015.
