19th-20th Century Landscapes; Four Seasons of Beauty

19th-20th Century Japanese Landscapes; Four Seasons of Beauty

This exhibition features landscape works by Hokusai, Hiroshige, Hasui and Hiroaki (Shotei), the most prominent landscape specialists of their time. Each in their own style, these artists dramatize the scenery as well as humanize it, capturing the broader essence of the place as well as the specifics of time of day, season and weather. Both idealized and yet highly specific, these works also serve as remembrances for scenes in Japan that have been lost to modern development.
