Exhibition - Celebrating The Arts Of Japan: The Mary Griggs Burke Collection

Friday, Apr 21, 2017 at 10:00am


This tribute to a great collector reveals the distinctive features of Japanese art as viewed through the lens of 50 years of collecting: the sublime spirituality of Buddhist and Shinto art; the boldness of Zen ink painting; the imaginary world conjured up by the Tale of Genji and classical Japanese literature; the sumptuous colors of bird-and-flower painting; the subtlety of poetry, calligraphy, and literati themes; the aestheticized accoutrements of the tea ceremony; and the charming portraiture of courtesans from the "floating world" (ukiyo-e).

The exhibition is made possible by the Mary Griggs Burke Fund, gift of the Mary Livingston Griggs and Mary Griggs Burke Foundation, 2015.
