A Profusion of Flowers at Yamatane Museum of Art

Art, Museums & Exhibitions

Around 60 works are up for display – you will see a vast mosaic of petals and leaves at the Yamatane Museum’s 55th anniversary special exhibition. Since ancient times, artists in Japan across disciplines have loved flowers. Working off of the Chinese-style floral and vegetal art of the Middle Ages, artists after the Meiji Period sought new expressions maintaining the aesthetics exceof the past, but integrating Western painting techniques and modern sensibilities. This exhibition focuses on modern and contemporary Japanese painting, like Taikan Yokoyama’s cherry blossoms, Kokei Kobayashi’s lotus petals and Gyoshu Hayami’s camellias.
