Jakuchu and Buson were both born in the year 1716, an epochal event for the Edo-period art world. Jakuchu was known for his colorful paintings and ink drawings, and Buson for his landscape painting using Chinese bunjinga techniques and haiga paintings combining painting and haiku with simple brush strokes. As the exhibition is to commemorate 300 years since the birth of Jakuchu and Buson, it will feature a number of works for which the artists are known, including Jakuchu’s Elephant and Whale folding screen, and Buson’s Wooden Path to Shu, which was rediscovered after being missing for 92 years.
