KAIHŌ YŪSHŌ-KYOTO NATIONAL MUSEUM
A week ago I decided to go to see the exhibition of the famous Japanese artist Kaihō Yushō at the Kyoto National Museum.
If you're thinking 'Who's this artist...?'
Kaihō Yūshō was a Japanese painter of the Azuchi–Momoyama period. He was one of the most famous and important Japanese artists of this period. His Kanō-style screen paintings are notable for their graceful lines and brilliant colour harmonies, qualities that influenced later artists.
I think I'd like this sort of thing! I wonder if there are any chances to see works from this artist in Tokyo. Is this a touring exhibition or only for Kyoto?
