Offering works by the masters who led the artistic development of the Edo period, Kashima Arts will commemorate the end of 2020 with a selection of one of their ultimate specialities.

Bringing an end to a long period of turmoil, the Edo period marked a social revolution where works of art, once exclusive only to nobility and those of great authority, became widely available for the benefit of the masses. As a result, painters previously constrained by conservative artistic practices began to take an active role, and Japan was gifted with 300 years of cultural prosperity. While maintaining tradition, Edo paintings developed a rich visual culture that elaborated past motifs and formed new styles of artistic expression. With their timeless aesthetics, these works are the ultimate emblems of Japanese art.
