Lineage of Eccentrics: The Miraculous World of Edo Painting

This exhibition, based on art historian Nobuo Tsuji’s 1970 book, Lineage of Eccentrics, will be the definitive examination of “eccentric paintings” of the Edo period. Appearing in one venue will be major works by eight artists—Iwasa Matabei, Kano Sansetsu, Ito Jakuchu, Soga Shohaku, Nagasawa Rosetsu, and Utagawa Kuniyoshi, as well as Hakuin Ekaku and Suzuki Kiitsu. Numerous important cultural properties will be included. By showing the rich allure of Edo painting—a powerfully imaginative world, filled with bizarre imagery—the exhibition will evoke a “lineage of eccentrics” of new aspect, speaking to contemporary sensibilities.
