ROSETSU – Ferocious Brush

6 September - 4 November 2018
Museum Rietberg | Zürich, Switzerland

"We have the pleasure to invite you to share a unique art experience at the Museum Rietberg, the museum for Asian and African art in Zurich, Switzerland. For the very first time, the complete interior of the Zen temple Muryōji in Kushimoto with all impressive wall paintings by Edo artist Nagasawa Rosetsu (1754-1799) is being shown outside of Japan, exclusively in Zurich and for only eight weeks. Encompassing over fifty paintings on silk, paper and wooden screens, most of them supreme Japanese cultural heritage pieces, from renowned Japanese, American, and European museums and private collections, the exhibition marks the first comprehensive show dedicated to the legendary Japanese artist Nagasawa Rosetsu in a Western museum."

Dr Khanh Trinh (Curator for Japanese art at the Museum Rietberg), Dr Matthew McKelway (Takeo and Itsuko Atsumi Professor of Japanese Art History, Columbia University, New York), Curators
