Itō Jakuchū was a Japanese painter of the early modern period who was active during Edo times in Kyoto. He is known for his unique painting method called masumega which sees his works built up of tens of thousands of squares which are all painted individually. One of these pieces is the above-pictured famous Birds and Animals in the Flower Garden.
The exhibition will feature a range of mediums including sculptures, paintings, textiles, ceramics, metalwork and more.
