Tides of Fortune

"Tides of Fortune" illustrates changes in the presentation of beauty in Japanese artworks from the Edo period through modern times. The ebb and flow of traditions and innovations will manifest in the many art objects including inspired works by enamellists Namikawa Sosuke, Hattori Tadasaburo; metalworkers Takasaki Koichi, Komai Otojiro, Myochin Munekazu, Miyabe Atsuyoshi, Sessei Okazaki, Neja Churoku, Tsuchiya Kyohei and Sato Hideaki,; Satsuma ceramics by Kinkozan; basketry by Maeda Chikubosai II. A pair of screen paintings by Hashidate Shisen and a pair of vases by enamelist Ando Jubei will serve as delightful examples of the way different talented Japanese artisans used diverse media in different times to address similar themes, each breathtaking and worthy of acclaim.
