Overview

This temple,Daijyo-ji, was founded about twelve hundred and fifty years ago.Sometimes Daijyo-ji is called Ohkyo-ji. Ohkyo Maruyama was a famous artist in the Edo era about two hundred years ago.The works at Daijyo-ji have been said to be Ohkyo's gift to repay the kindness of chief priest who assisted the young artist in times of need.The paintings took eight years to complete. Ohkyo has been called the father of the sketch and has contributed greatly to the modernization of japanese painting. The reason for such high acclaim lies in his distinctive approach to the pictorial surface, which transformed the mere surface painting do form s to a deeper examination and understanding of the basic structures of objects. After his death,this approach to painting was passed on to the Maruyama sect and Shijyo Maruyama sect.
