The Flowering of Edo Period Painting:Japanese Masterworks From The Feinberg Collection (Shiga)

This event has ended.

Betsy and Robert Feinberg, who reside in the state of Maryland in the USA, have built an impressive collection of Japanese art, centered on Edo-period painting. Rather than the conservative paintings of the official Kano and Tosa schools, the Feinberg Collection focuses on a diverse range of free, energetic works by popular painters of the Edo period ranging from the Rinpa artists Ogata Kōrin (1658–1716) and Sakai Hōitsu (1761–1829), the literati painters Ike no Taiga (1723–1776), Yosa Buson (1716–1784),and Tani Bunchō (1763–1840), the Shijō Maruyama painters Maruyama Ōkyo (1733–1795), and Mori Sosen (1747–1821), the eccentric artists Itō Jakuchū (1716–1800) and Soga Shōhaku (1730–1781), to the ukiyoe painters Hishigawa Moronobu (1618–1694) and Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849). This exhibition introduces nearly ninety outstanding works from this superb collection. We hope you enjoy this blossoming profusion of Edo-period paintings!
