Familiar to almost every Japanese as “Amida-sama,” Amida Nyorai (Amitābha) was already an object of faith in the Asuka period (550-710). With the rise of Pure Land (Jōdo) Buddhism, this Buddha became seen throughout Japan as a savior who led people to rebirth in the Pure Land. As Buddhism evolved in Japan, faith in Amida Nyorai took on many aspects, and this Buddha became one of the pillars of Buddhist art. The focus of this exhibition is Buddhist paintings from the Nezu Museum collection, chosen to provide an overview of the history and spread of belief in Amida Nyorai in Japan. The exhibition also includes works from the Korean kingdom of Goryeo. Amida Nyorai: Yearning for thee Pure Land will thus be an opportunity to learn more about the gorgeous and varied worlds of art related to Amida Nyorai.
