Jakuchu Revealed
300th Anniversary of Ito Jakuchu's Birth

October 4 (Tuesday) -December 4 (Sunday)

 

Ito Jakuchu was born in 1716 as the eldest son of a greengrocer in Kyoto's Nishiki Market. He studied the methods of the Kano school, Ogata Korin, and the Yuan and Ming dynasties of China while running the family business. At age 40, he turned the business over to his younger brother and dedicated himself to painting until his death in 1800. This exhibit illustrates the world Jakuchu created with his distinct style of painting - flowers and birds in a sketched, yet decorative style as well as his innovative approach to sumi-e ink wash paintings.
