Inside The Floating World: An introduction to Japanese Art
6 May @ 10:15 am - 12:15 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:15 am on Friday, repeating until 20th May, 2022
Japanese art covers a wide range of art styles and media, including ancient pottery, sculpture, ink painting and calligraphy on silk and paper. Its common denominator is an exquisite sense and sensibility of art and design that is unique in the world. Developed largely in isolation from the outside world, Japanese art became hugely influential on Western European artists during the last quarter of the nineteenth century. Themed to coincide with the arrival of Japan: A Floating World in Print touring exhibition organised by Maidstone Museum for Maidstone Borough Council. Please join us for this series illuminating some of the key themes in Japanese art.
Sessions include light refreshments
