+1 to Iran's decision to withhold viewing until social context changes. A clear sacrifice of current value to future context.

Smithsonian's Sackler Gallery premieres works by Japanese master painter ~ Kano Kazunobu

http://tinyurl.com/7uuw92s (artknowledgenews.com)

In early 1854, just as American Commodore Matthew Perry’s ships steamed into Edo Bay to persuade Japan to open its ports to the world, the esteemed painter Kano Kazunobu (1816-63) received a commission from a highly respected Buddhist temple located in the heart of Edo, now modern-day Tokyo. His mission was to create 100 paintings on a wildly popular theme of the day—the lives and deeds of the Buddha’s 500 disciples, known in Japan as rakan.

For the first time in the U.S., Kazunobu’s graphic and flamboyantly imagined depictions of the daily lives and wondrous deeds of the Buddha’s legendary disciples are on view in “Masters of Mercy: Buddha’s Amazing Disciples” at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, March 10 through July 8....

Also on view in the nation's capital this spring is "Hokusai: 36 Views of Mount Fuji," March 24–June 17 at the Sackler and "Colorful Realm: Japanese Bird-and-Flower Paintings by Itō Jakuchū (1716–1800)," at the National Gallery of Art.

Each exhibition features not only a retrospective of a distinctive and important painter and designer of the 18th and 19th centuries, but also specific thematic ensembles of works, many never seen outside Japan, created by Kazunobu, Hokusai and Jakuchū over periods as long as a decade. All three exhibitions are free of charge and accessible on the National Mall between 12th and Seventh streets.

Have just been to see the David Hockney exhibition at the Royal Academy in London. Breathtaking. The main focus is pictures of local woods and paths near to where he now lives, in East Yorkshire.
Image

These are objectively nothing special, but in Hockney's eyes they become something else. Like Monet, he paints the same scene over and over again in different lights and at different seasons. The climax, in the main hall of the Academy, is 52 iPad drawings and one huge canvas of the coming of spring to Woldgate Woods, taken twice a week from January to June.


I sincerely hope they keep this together after the exhibition ends, the obvious place is Salts Mill, Saltaire near Bradford where there are already a lot of his paintings and where there is the space to keep them all together.

Thanks for that, Torchwood. Very interesting. Artlyst.com refers to the high demand for tickets in the final weeks of the exhibition, so that's encouraging.

That's a bit of a drive from London or Peterborough. Very magnanimous of you.

Nicholas Roerich was a Russian painter, spy, adventurer, and mystic. He designed the original sets and costumes for his friend Stravinsky's Le sacre du printemps. He was deeply involved with Madame Blavatsky and the Theosophists and their Shambhala Project, but then an artist should be slightly mad.

Antipatros,

Perhaps you'd be interested in the Nicholas Roerich Museum in New York.

I never heard of the artist until you posted the images on this thread (thanks) but now I want to see some of his work in person.
