This is also the fifth exhibition in the "First Appreciation of Antiquities" series, which explains various genres of antiquities and their highlights in an easy-to-understand manner. This year, I will take up a portrait that is one of the main themes of painting.
Portraits are now commonplace, but in fact they were abominable in ancient Japan. But even in such times, only those who were objects of faith were depicted exceptionally. Since the Middle Ages, portraits have become more common, and later they have been painted for a variety of people. In this exhibition, we will introduce the main genres of human paintings in an easy-to-understand manner, while overviewing the development of "people-to-people" works.
