Suzuki Kiitsu screen exhibition

The Suntory museum in Tokyo has an exhibition of screen paintings by Suzuki Kiitsu in October 2016.  Of the displayed screens, the most unique and great one is "Morning Glory".  It was brought over from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY for the viewing in Tokyo.   It is a pair of tall 6-panel gold leaf screens.  Great works by Suzuki Kiitsu(1796-1858).  It's worth seeing that while you are in Tokyo.
