Women with Insomnia from The Scroll of Diseases and Deformities, fragment. Part of the Suntory Museum of Art Collection

To celebrate a decade in Roppongi, this unprecedented exhibition focuses on generations of great enthusiasts for Emakimono or e-maki. These Japanese illustrated texts or narrative picture scrolls are a fusion of art and literature, created between the 11th and 16th centuries. The history of their production was heavily impacted by figures such as the retired emperor Go-Shirakawa, Emperor Hanazono, and the Prince Sudatusa of Fushimi. By looking at the passion, admiration and biographies of these highly idiosyncratic individuals, the exhibition delves into previously unexplored context, offering an exciting new angle on the e-maki.
