DARUMA 18TH CENTURY JAPAN
NOBUHIRO CALLIGRAPHY 17TH CENTURY JAPAN

Carole Davenport announces her fall exhibition, Medieval to Modern: Japanese Works of Art, a select exhibition of all fields of Japanese art, from stunning sculpture exemplified by a strong 18th century Daruma figure whose red robes are finely painted in mineral pigments and gold, to a dramatic and extraordinarily large stencil print by Yoshitoshi Mori executed in 1963, to a fine white porcelain group of two quails from the mid-Edo period. In celebration of the Rinpa shows at the Metropolitan Museum and the Japan Society, there are ceramic works by Kenzan and his followers as well as a representative calligraphy by Nobuhiro of the famed Konoe family of the 17th century. This exhibit also serves to introduce the sublime photography of Koichiro Kurita whose images grace museum collections in the United States and Japan. Hours are one to four daily or by appointment. Contact telephone numbers are 212-7344859 or 646-2498500. To be held at 131 East 83 St., Suite 7D, New York, N.Y. 10028 from Sept. 8 to 28 with a reception on Sept. 8, 4 to 8pm.
