Rinpa – Decoration and the Beauty of Simplicity


The lineage of Japanese painting “rinpa”, which began with Sotatsu Tawaraya in Kyoto during the Edo period, has been handed down to the present for nearly 400 years. In 2018, the rinpa exhibition was held at the Czernuski Museum in Paris, and now it has grown to attract art fans all over the world, but as its popularity rises, the gorgeous and luxurious treatment of rinpa works It is also true that only attention has been paid. However, the essence is not in the luxurious materials such as gold leaf and silver leaf used in the work, but in the outstanding design sense and the sophistication of painting.
