This exhibition is being shown at the Art Gallery of South Australia.




From the austerity of a brush and ink painting to vivid woodblock prints, Misty Mountain, Shining Moon expresses the beauty of the Japanese landscape as represented by some of the world’s most celebrated artists. 

With a deep reverence for the natural world, Japanese artists have long appreciated the scenic beauty of the mountains and fertile plains of the archipelago, venerated as the abode of numinous deities. Presenting works of art made from the sixteenth century to the present day, Misty Mountain, Shining Moon offers an evolving dialogue between artists and nature.
