A Profusion of Flowers at Yamatane Museum of Art

10:00–16:00 (10:00 - 17:00 on Saturdays, Sundays and National Holidays | Closed on Mondays, 4/26-5/11)・Apr 10, 2021–Jun 27, 2021・Yamatane Museum of Art Hiroo 3-12-36, Shibuya-ku

The Yamatane Museum of Art has reopened on May 15 but will shorten opening hours.

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 of 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.
