The people of Japan have long felt close to nature and have keenly sensed the changing seasons. Bird song and insect cries signaling a season's arrival, cherry blossoms scattered by the wind and maple leaves turning color, the moon waxing and waning: beauty is discovered in the changing seasons. That careful attention is sensitively conveyed in many waka poems and works of art that depict the flora and natural scenes specific to each season. This exhibition is composed of paintings and craft works whose motifs are taken from nature—the moon, the seasonal flora—as well as detached segments of calligraphy recording waka on those subjects. It offers an opportunity to sense Japan’s seasons and natural world through familiar objects.
