The Okura Collection is buried in a number of masterpieces, and interesting works are quietly waiting for re-evaluation. In this exhibition, I tried to discover about Japanese painting. If you review what looks like a rare or rare work with modern values again, an interesting work will emerge.
The painter of one ship of "Fan Face Scattering Folding Screen" is now good at Yuru-chara, and its expression is attractive. The mysterious expression of "Kanzan's pick-up map" will be loved by people who like dramatic art. In the "Yuraku Jinzu Folding Screen", a new development of Hikone folding screen can be seen. In "Mushitaihei Kiemaki", you can see a good performance of insects who are obediently personified.
In addition, you will be able to come up with works that overturn the image of the museum, such as works of simple expression with a religious background and works full of elegance based on classics.
