Adventures in Monochrome

“Adventures in Monochrome” at Nezu Museum walks the visitor in a discovery of sumi ink, which is one the most important medium for traditional painting in Japan, which developed in close association with calligraphy. There are two main types of sumi paintings: ink-wash paintings use gradations, blurring, and modulated lines; brush-line paintings, instead, use thin and uniform lines.
In this exhibition of early modern works from Japan, the artists explore the creative potential of sumi ink with examples of both ink-wash and brush-line paintings.
Reservation is required and must be made on the museum’s official website by the day before your visit. Discounts available for students.
