Summer Pleasures – Masterpieces from the Klaus F. Naumann Collection

14.06.2016 to 18.09.2016
Museum für Asiatische Kunst

Comprising 200 artists and nearly 400 objects, the Klaus F. Naumann Collection of East Asian art is one of the museum’s main attractions. Highlights of the collection, of which a regularly changing selection is shown in a separate gallery, primarily represent the fields of Japanese painting and lacquerware. The focus of this season’s selection is on pictures and objects that portray summer landscapes, flowers and birds.

Through the saturated tones of Chinese ink on a monochromatic landscape, the Japanese literati painter Yamamoto Baiitsu (1783–1856) conveys the dampness of the air after a summer rain, while peacocks and peonies against a golden background on a pair of folding screens from the workshop of Yoshimura Kōkei (1769–1836) seem to evoke the season in all its blazing colours.
