Description:

Worship garment from antique books about Kabuki and inventory records from the Sake Brewery in Onishi. At the turn of the eighteenth century, calligraphy and painting artists in Japan started to meet in so called shogakai gatherings. Initially a demonstration of extemporized artwork, later they extended as colossal affairs, whose participants numbered in the hundreds. As a self-conscious spectacle the artistic exchanges became an amusement before an appreciative paying public and degenerated into ‘autograph parties’.
