Ink, Paper, Silk: One Hundred Years of Collecting Japanese Art

Exhibition Website

Dec 12 2018 - Apr 14 2019

This exhibition features a selection of exceptional prints, as well as hanging scroll paintings, screens, lacquerware, and ceramics that have entered the collection over the century.

A remarkable group of surimono prints—small, privately published prints made for special occasions and intended as gifts—is on view, for the first time, along with translations of the poetry inscribed on these exceptionally beautiful works. The grandeur of the impressive Japanese tradition of screen painting is on display in several examples of this format. The exhibition also features several fine lacquerware and ceramic pieces that have recently joined the collection.
