Culture Lecture: Get to know Japanese traditional paintings – vol.2 “Jakuchu in the natural light”

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to enjoy traditional Japanese paintings by Ito Jakuchu, his pupils or the likes without a glass case in natural light? Now you can find out! Paintings used to be appreciated in natural light and candlelight in the Edo period. So this time we wondered, why not have that even today? You will view them in a whole new different perspective, guided by an expert and scholar on Japanese paintings.
