Tosa Mitsuoki Note Card Folio

Price: $10

Founded in the fifteenth century, the Tosa school was dedicated to Japanese art and lore (yamato-e) rather than the Chinese styles prevalent in the region at the time. Mitsuoki helped reintroduce yamato-e--highlighting nature, the annual seasons, and famous places or stories--while adding urban updates and focusing attention on detailed ink brushwork. He paired original designs with a consistently precise and refined style, becoming a collected and revered painter, especially of bird-and-flower images.

10 full color note cards with envelopes. Contains five each of two images. Dimensions: 5 x 7".

Phoenix, from Chinese Beauty, Phoenix and Peacock, 1691; and Peacock, from Chinese Beauty, Phoenix and Peacock, 1691 by Japanese artist Tosa Mitsuoki (1617–1691) are both in the IMA's permanent collection.
