40 artist’s work of Changing Seasons in Kyoto
- From Spring to Summer -
 

Throughout the year, as the different seasons come and go, the scenery in Kyoto displays many different qualities; the vibrant drama of the mountains and rivers with the spirit of nature flowing between the trees, ordinary people going about their daily lives, and festivals and events at historical temples and shrines. The beautiful natural scenery and traditional culture of Kyoto combine to create a very special and much beloved atmosphere. Kyoto efecture has commissioned a series of paintings by artists with an association to the city, in order to promote the beauty of Kyoto to a wider audience and pass on its heritage to future generations.

In the current exhibition is work by artists who have sensitively depicted Kyoto in spring and summer, selected from the *Four Seasons of Kyoto*series created in 1986, as well as the *Celebration of Life* series of 1992, which commemorated the 8th international conference for the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, which was held in Kyoto. We hope the art successfully conveys the charm of the changing seasons, from spring, as the trees bud, grass grows anew and flowers are in bloom, to the delightful ambience of summer.

Insho's Preparatory drawing for Fusuma Paintings
- Chishaku-in temple, Saiho-ji temple, Honen-in temple -


Insho Domoto made a number of Fusuma paintings mainly for temples and shrines in Kyoto.

This exhibition showcases Insho’s preliminary drawings, from our collection, for these fusuma paintings. The images show the shinden (most sacred part of the shrine) of Chishaku-in temple, the main hall of Saiho-ji temple, and the hōjō (abbot’s residence) and boseikaku (western-facing part of the shrine complex) of Honen-in temple, and the inspiration Insho received from these interior spaces.
