"Depicting The Refreshing Summer"
Shohaku Art Museum
By TOMOKO HORI
One of the most cherished themes of nihonga (Japanese-style painting) artists who celebrate the four seasons in their works is to incorporate seasonal Japanese beauties in their paintings.
This exhibition features three well-known nihonga artists from the Uemura family — Shoen (1875-1949), Shoko (1902-2001) and Atsushi (b. 1933) — and their works featuring summer motifs. In addition, a woven fabric cover of a float used in the Gion Matsuri (one of the most famous traditional summer festivals in Kyoto), which was designed by Shoko and Atsushi, is on show with its design drawing; till Sept. 25.
