We examine a "Rakuchu Rakugai-zu" folding screen painted between 1615 and 1624. It is a detailed image of the streetscape of 17th century Kyoto and is a wonderful resource to enable us to understand the vibrant nature of Kyoto in the 17th Century. The lecture will examine the art history of the screen, and all of the fine detail in the screen. It will then compare the content of the artwork with the contemporary streetscape of Kyoto.
Fee: $39.00
