Ninsei and Kenzan: Kyoto Ceramics and Painting

2017.November 3rd~April 1st


Nonomura Ninsei (dates unknown) and Ogata Kenzan (1663–1743) were major ceramicists active in Kyoto during the Edo period (1603–1868). Ninsei mastered vibrant painted ceramic pieces, and is seen as the founder of Kyō-yaki (Kyoto ware). Ogata Kenzan, in turn, developed this style of ceramics, producing new, innovative pieces. This exhibition will bring together works by Ninsei and Kenzan held by the Okada Museum of Art, as well as Old Kiyomizu ware, which was also made in Kyoto, and the works of Ogata Kōrin and Itō Jakuchū. Visitors are invited to enjoy the elegant world of art that blossomed in Kyoto.
