Matthew McKelway, Takeo and Itsuko Atsumi, Travelling with Rosetsu

This article examines the impact of travel on the art of Nagasawa Rosetsu (1754–99),
whose work is the subject of a major loan exhibition this autumn at the Museum
Rietberg in Zurich. An up-and-coming painter from Kyoto, in 1786 Rosetsu embarked
on a sojourn to Kushimoto on Honshū, where he produced a large volume of work for
local patrons and temples on the Kii peninsula. This project was one of several that took
Rosetsu beyond the familiar environment of Kyoto. His work, together with that of Itō
Jakuchū (1716–1800) and Soga Shōhaku (1730–81), appealed to patrons throughout
Japan for its daring originality.
