Kyoto National Museum 120th Anniversary Commemorative Special Exhibition: Kaiho Yusho

Kaiho Yusho (1533-1615), the son of a notable senior statesman,started studying Kano school painting shortly after his father's death in 1545. Since the first half of his life remains much of a mystery, he is considered a late bloomer, with the works he produced during his 60s being outstanding examples of his individual style.

This exhibition celebrates the Kyoto National Museum's 120th anniversary with a showcase of 70 of Kaiho's works, including new discoveries, historical documents and a room dedicated to his paintings of dragons.
