Japanese artist Ito Jakuchu probably made Birds, Animals and Flowering Plants sometime in the mid-1700s, decades before American painter Edward Hicks made his famous Peaceable Kingdom. But the idea is similar: Creatures that wouldn't normally congregate are all happily there, in close quarters. Jakuchu's image, a boldly colored mosaic that plays out across six panels, is part of the “Color of Life” show in LACMA's Japanese Pavilion. 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Mid-Wilshire; through April 20. (323) 857-6010, lacma.org.
