Yukio Nakagawa (b. 1918) departed from Japan's oldest and largest ikebana school, Ikenobo, to create unique avant-garde flower arrangements that transcended ikebana's staid precepts. Since his death in 2012, Atsunobu Katagiri, young master of the Misasagi ikebana school who likewise works freely across traditional and contemporary styles, often creates works in homage to Nakagawa and his earnest approach to flowers. In addition to Nagakawa’s photographic works and calligraphy, this exhibition at Ryosokuin (Kenninji Temple) features a Katagiri flower arrangement in a glass sculpture by Nakagawa.
