ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One of the most renowned artists in Japanese history is being recognized in a show here in South Georgia.
Works inspired by the late 18th century Japanese artist known as Sharaku are on display at the Albany Museum of Art through March 26th. The works are part of a collection which came to Albany all the way from Lima, Peru.
The show is part of an agreement between the museum and the Japanese Consulate in Atlanta. Sharaku is a legend in Japan. And part of the reason for that is the mystery behind his identity.
Nick Nelson, the Executive Director of the Albany Museum of Art said, "some people believe he was a famous artist who was trying to make experimental work and didn't want to give himself a bad name. Others believe that he was a group of artists and others believe that he was a spy."
You can decide for yourself by seeing the exhibit. The museum is open from 10 until 5, Tuesday through Saturday and admission is free. An after hours reception featuring sushi and saki will be held on March 3rd.
