Exhibition ‘Special Exhibition: Kano Sanraku and Sansetsu’ Opened

years:March 2013

On March 31, the special exhibition titled ‘Kano Sanraku and Sansetsu’ opened at the Kyoto National Museum (until May 12). This exhibition traced the life and work of Sanraku, the head of the Kyō-Kanō school line, and Sansetsu, the second head of the Kyō-Kanō school, through 83 works, including three from overseas. Based on painstaking research and study, the exhibition demonstrated how the two generations inherited KANŌ Eitoku’s splendid style of painting while they developed richer and more of their original styles.
