New portrait of Wordsworth and Bashō unveiled at Rydal Mount

August 24, 2016

A new work "Walking Poets" was unveiled for just one night at Rydal Mount in the Lake District before heading for a major exhibition in Japan.

This work titled "Walking Poets (quadriptych)" portraying the English romantic poet William Wordsworth with the Japanese haiku poet Matsuo Bashō was inspired by the Japanese traditional painting style "Fusuma-e (paintings on the sliding doors)", which was and still is commissioned by Buddhist temples and nobles in Japan.It will be on show at Kakimori Bunko Museum in Japan from September as part of the curated exhibition "Wordsworth and Bashō:Walking Poets", which assembles some of the original manuscripts of the poets: Wordsworth in England and Bashō in Japan, alongside artworks created by over 20 contemporary artists from the UK and Japan.
