18th-Century Masters of Ink: Shohaku and Rosetsu

April 7, 2007–June 24, 2007
Gallery 109

Soga Shohaku (1730–1781) and Nagasawa Rosetsu (1754–1799) were two rebels of 18th-century Japanese painting in Kyoto. Both were trained in the classic manner of their respective schools but created a distinctive style that can only be described as independent and daring. Not surprisingly, their art matched their nonconformist personalities. On view will be a pair of screens and several hanging scrolls by these masters of the brush.
