• Japan’s most famous tiger comes exclusively to Zurich.
  • The tiger, and a dragon that is just as impressive, are temple wall paintings from the most imaginative and eccentric artist in modern Japan.
  • These and other breathtaking masterpieces by Rosetsu can now be seen outside Japan for the first time.

To the timetable

In a single night in 1786, or so it is said, Rosetsu painted his monumental tiger and a dragon – the symbols for the primal forces of human existence and nature – on the wall in the central area of a Zen temple.

These icons of Japanese painting leave their country of origin for the first time and can be seen exclusively at the Museum Rietberg in Zurich for a period of eight weeks.
