Event contents

We meet Zen meeting sen厓

sen厓 (1750-1837) civilizes general public by painting and calligraphic work which we created in stroke of the pen that the light wonder is detached and is "sen厓 of Hakata" and loved Zen priest who is in the latter half of the Edo era. We focused on the world of teaching and lesson to lie hidden in humor and the back expressed by sen厓zo as representative cultured person of the Edo era when we lived in later years of comfortable retirement for drawing and hobby so far and Zen image and we read work and untied.
We look back toward figure of sen厓 which pushed on in spreading *sumizen in the early modern times when teaching of Zen which reached Japan this time penetrated generally widely. Particularly, what was Zen which sen厓 where we utilized image which oneself was good at and left many works for was going to tell on interpreting mind of Chinese Zen handed down again, and preaching clearly, and untying, and spreading the teaching to general public? We want to reflect the world of Zen image of sen厓 once again.
In addition, to book exhibition holding, sen厓 and distinguished priest of Zen forming a line, house hermitage of Ikkyu (1394-1481) display ceramics of Kyushu kilns produced late in the Edo era when work related to shosaiiori and sen厓 played an active part in total.
We listen to teaching of sen厓 speaking to us through Zen image for a while and would appreciate your enjoying the expression.
