To the Dazzling World of Kimono!
Discover the Wonder of Early Edo-Period Clothing Including the “Fuyuki Kosode” Designed by the Master Painter Ogata Kōrin.
Kosode is an early version of what we now call kimono. In the Edo period (1603–1868), wealthy women in particular prioritized extravagance in the way they dressed and sought out bespoke fashions. Painted kosode featuring designs by famous artists applied directly to the fabric were valued especially highly. “Kimono (Kosode) with Autumn Grasses,” also known as the “Fuyuki Kosode,” was painted by the Edo-period artist Ogata Kōrin for a lumber merchant named Fuyuki in Fukagawa.
This program features Edo-period kosode fashion, while exploring how Ogata Kōrin’s unique kosode was created and how it was brought back to life through a recent conservation project.
