Ink and Gold: Art of the Kano

  

The exhibition Ink and Gold: Art of the Kano, for which the Tokyo National Museum provided special collaboration, will be held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the United States. It features 120 works of the Kano school, which reigned as a major school of painting from the Muromachi (1392–1573) to the late Edo (1603–1868) period. Providing a comprehensive overview of its 400-year history, this exhibition ranges from the school’s founder, Kano Masanobu (1434–1530), to the modern-period masters Kano Hogai (1828–1888) and Hashimoto Gaho (1835–1908) who studied the Kano style.
