At this moment, the Kyoto National Museum is showcasing some extraordinarily breathtaking work. Three sets of “Wind God” and “Thunder God” screens by three major Rinpa (also known as Rimpa) artists are being displayed together in the same location for the first time in 75 years. And where else but in Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital and the birthplace of the Rinpa school of painting.

This special exhibition, celebrating the school’s 400th anniversary, showcases a selection of historically significant paintings and objects including lacquerware, ceramics and textiles.
