29th Sesshu International Art Association Exhibition

From traditional to contemporary. About 230 works of various calligraphies and paintings will be exhibited. A festival of calligraphy and painting art will be held at the National Art Center, Tokyo, Roppongi.

In December, 220 artists selected from all over Japan, who were influenced by Sesshu and other famous artists such as Sesshu Yang, the founder of Japanese ink painting in the Muromachi period, will gather at the National Art Center, Tokyo in Roppongi. Approximately 230 works will be exhibited.

Six of Sesshu’s works have been designated as national treasures, which is still unprecedented in Japan. Several reproductions of Sesshu’s masterpiece “Landscapes of the Four Seasons,” a 16-meter long picture scroll, and other works will also be on display.

This exhibition, now in its 29th year, has attracted many foreigners interested in Japan in past years, making it aptly named “International” exhibition. The exhibition will continue to convey the splendor of art that transcends national borders.

We hope you will experience the new possibilities of Japanese painting, ink painting, and calligraphy, which are not bound by existing frameworks.
