The Kanō school’s long rule over the art world in Japan lasted four centuries. That school’s founding father, Kanō Masanobu (1434?–1530) distinguished himself as an artist producing Chinese-style paintings during the Muromachi period (1336–1573), laying the foundations for what would become that school. At the same time period, the achievements of Tosa Mitsunobu (1434?–1525) were raising the Tosa school, a group of artists working in Yamato-e, a traditional style of Japanese painting, to new heights. The Kanō school went on to dominate art circles in Japan, but the Tosa school lived on unbroken over the generations, and achieved a remarkable revival in the first half of the Edo period (1615-1868), when Tosa artists served the imperial court.
This exhibition focuses on Kanō and Tosa school works in the museum collection to present the work of artists serving the shogunate and the imperial court in the Muromachi and Edo periods.
