Vessels and Brushes
Rosanjin, Rousseau, Bauchant, and Others

Overview

We grow fond of vessels as we use them on a daily basis, and develop a curious familiarity with paintings. In this exhibition, we present food receptacles designed by Kitaoji Rosanjin and paintings by naïve artists such as Henri Rousseau and Andre Bauchant, which are among the most popular works in the museum collection. The Setagaya-based businessman Shioda Iwaji, a close friend of Rosanjin’s, amassed the artist’s vessels over an extended period, and put them to practical use. Naïve art, which depicts a world of expression that extends beyond the scope of everyday life, also serves as a symbol of the museum’s activities. The exhibition will provide visitors with an opportunity to return to the inception of the museum, and quietly savor the joy of creation.
