Special Exhibition The Tea Ceremony in Edo Commemorating the Tricentennial of the Birth of Kawakami Fuhaku 特別展 江戸の茶の湯 川上不白 生誕三百年

Nezu Museum, 6-5-1 Minami Aoyama, Minato City, Tokyo

The world of tea ceremony passed down by Kawakami Fuhaku

Kawakami Fuhaku (1719-1807) popularized the Senke school of tea ceremony in Edo (in present day Tokyo), and was the originator of the Fuhaku school. This exhibition, commemorating the 300th anniversary of Fuhaku’s birth, showcases the world of tea ceremony that he established. The exhibition looks at the master-disciple relationship Fuhaku had with Joshinsai 7th-generation head of Omotesenke school, and in addition to displaying Fuhaku’s favored tea wares, will look at his relationship with the craftsmen and his own pupils - who included feudal lords - displaying paintings and calligraphic works that seem to reflect his character. It also studies the influence Fuhaku had on later modern-day tea ceremony masters, among them the founder of the Nezu Museum’s collection, Nezu Kaichiro Sr (1860-1940), and delves into his enduring appeal.
