Isao Miura Private View

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Join Travelling Through... for a sampler of sake and a fascinating journey in the footsteps of Japan's greatest poet, Matsuo Basho, with artist and sculptor Isao Miura.

Hailing from the "deep north" himself, Isao will guide visitors through some of the beautiful charcoal sketches which began his own journey to "translate" Basho's masterpiece, The Narrow Road to the Deep North, into visual images.

Learn about Basho's status as the much-loved father figure of Japanese poetry and also have the chance to travel with Isao as he moves from two to three dimensional images, from paper to plaster and bronze.
