In an electrifying moment in 1585, four Japanese youths appeared before Pope Gregory XIII, summoned to his court from the nascent Christian community in Japan to present themselves at the capital of their faith. Legendary photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto follows in the boys’ footsteps, capturing the architectural wonders of Rome, Florence, and Venice as the Eastern visitors might have seen them on their grand tour. Sugimoto’s images present each chapel and theater as a marvel, imposing and dark. He contextualizes his photographs with Japanese works from the period and the decades that follow. These panels and objects attest to the impact of Western culture, specifically Jesuit Christianity, on Momoyama and Edo aesthetics as Japanese artists envisioned scenes of European life. Hiroshi Sugimoto is a world-renowned artist. Ryuji Hiraoka is assistant professor at the Prefectural University of Kumamoto. Monsignor Timothy Verdon is the director of the Opera del Duomo Museum, Florence. Mark Erdmann is an art historian in Kyoto. Yukie Kamiya is the director of Japan Society Gallery, New York.
