Masterpieces from the Japanese Painting Collection

Minneapolis Institute of Art


From the Minneapolis Institute of Art: This catalogue accompanies the special exhibition from the Minneapolis Institute of Art held at four venues in Japan from 2021 to 2022: the Suntory Museum of Art, Fukushima Prefectural Museum of Art, MIHO MUSEUM, and Yamaguchi Prefectural Art Museum. The exhibition showcases masterpieces from this collection of Japanese art, with a focus on Edo-period paintings, including works by artists from the Kano school and Rinpa tradition, as well as ukiyo-e artists. Through this selection of masterly works by widely admired artists, including Sesson Shūkei, Kano Sansetsu, Itō Jakuchū, Soga Shōhaku, Katsushika Hokusai, and Tōshūsai Sharaku, the exhibition traces the evolution of Japanese painting while also giving a sense of the intentions of the American collectors fascinated by Japanese art who acquired these works and later bequeathed or donated them to the museum.

Details: Distributed for the Minneapolis Institute of Art, 2021. 263 pages.
