Museum: Freer Gallery of Art
Location: Gallery 8
On view in two rotations are thirteen paintings from the museum's collection of Rimpa art by such masters as Ogata Kenzan, Ogata Korin, and Sakai Hoitsu. These paintings are layered with complex literary allusions and represent three distinct periods of stylistic revival during the early, mid, and late Edo period (1615- 1868). Works outside the decorative Rimpa style but typical of movements influential on Kenzan's style are also on view. See related exhibition: The Potter's Brush: The Kenzan Style in Japanese Ceramics.
