Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes 2006-2016


Seasons Greetings

Rudolph's cousin, pictured above, is rendered on a Japanese writing box (Suzuri-Bako) with a deer and foliage motif attributed to Hon'ami Kōetsu, 1558 - 1637. This piece is part of a new exhibition, Flowers and Birds, Wind and Moon: Nature’s Presence in Japanese Art and Culture, at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Soon more Japanese works will go on view at the Museum when a major show dedicated to the accomplishments of Kano painters, Ink and Gold: Art of the Kano, goes on view in February.

Beautiful piece! I have always been a really big fan of Japanese-styled art. Going to have to stop at this exhibit when I'm in Philly next month:)

Thanks for sharing!
