The Los Angeles County Museum of Art presents The Color of Life: Japanese Paintings from the Price Collection, opening this weekend (February 1) in the Pavilion for Japanese Art.

The exhibition features a selection of Japanese paintings from the renowned collection of Etsuko and Joe Price in Orange County.

In 2013, The Color of Life traveled to three cities in the Tohoku region of Japan, which was directly impacted by the great earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011.

The exhibition was a gesture of solidarity and support for the citizens of the Tohoku region and was greeted with enormous gratitude and enthusiasm in Japan.

Consisting of masterpieces by such artists as Ito Jakuchu, Nagasawa Rosetsu, Maruyama Okyo, Suzuki Kiitsu, Sakai Hoitsu, and Kawanabe Kyosai, The Color of Life will be shown in two rotations, the first from February 1 through March 9, 2014, and the second from March 15 through April 20, 2014.
