Yoshimura Yoshio: Beyond Hyper-realism

Yoshimura Yoshio’s drawings depict everyday scenes, hyper realistic recreations of newspapers, self-portraits on actual newspapers, and renditions of flowers that are so realistic that they look like photographs at first glance. Over 60 works and 600 items make up the retrospective of this incredibly gifted artist and must be seen in person to be fully appreciated.

KAZAN - A Superb Imagination at Work

With over 100 pieces, many from outside Japan, this collection of work by Yokoyama Kazan is an unparalleled opportunity to see a survey of the work of a master. Kazan’s ability to adapt his style to fit the subject matter and his use of perspective make this exhibition especially interesting for the viewer. A 30 meter long scroll with beautifully intricate paintings of the Gion (Kyoto) festival in its entirety is so rare and detailed that scholars use Kazan’s work as an historical reference. Humorous depictions of people, landscapes, birds and flowers and daily life are rendered in sketches, ink drawings, and paintings on scrolls and screens.
