Thread: Life of Animals in Japanese art

    Life of Animals in Japanese art

    Greetings art lovers,

    A current exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC deserves a mention. This exhibit is a survey of Japanese art spanning 17 centuries. I found it interesting that many of the artist were women. Unusual evidently in Japan's history of art making. Enjoy. Would love to see the exhibit in person.

    Because John Daido Loori's book (The Zen of Creativity) is so much about Japanese arts I thought some of you that are following our discussion in the Art Circle might find this exhibit interesting.

    Thanks Anne,

    I subscribe to the hyperallergic site but had missed this entry. Would love to go too!
    I bought a lovely book on Hokusai from the British Museum when I couldn't make it to the exhibition.
    It included information on his daughter Eijo who was also a talented painter and assisted her father a lot.
    Interesting that many of the artists in the current exhibition were women.
