Rosetsu in Context
Museum Rietberg, Zurich, 7 October 2018

Nagasawa Rosetsu, Scholars Crossing a Bridge, 1788–89, ink and color on paper, hanging scroll, 47 × 21 inches (San Diego Museum of Art).

Eighteenth-century Japan witnessed an unprecedented diversity in artistic expression, nourished by the flourishing of a sophisticated urban culture and the increased affluence of the population in provincial areas. This symposium presents an array of fresh perspectives on issues of art production and consumption as well as leading figures of the art scene that constitute the environment in which Nagasawa Rosetsu (1754–1799) lived and worked.

Organised with the support of the Mary Griggs Burke Center for Japanese Art, Columbia University, in conjunction with the special exhibition Rosetsu: Ferocious Brush, on view at the Museum Rietberg Zurich, 6 September — 4 November 2018. While participation in the symposium is free of charge, a registration is required.
