Celebrating the Arts of Japan: The Mary Griggs Burke Collection

CELEBRATING THE ARTS OF JAPAN THE MARY GRIGGS BURKE COLLECTION

Date(s): Oct 20, 2015 – Jul 31, 2016
Location: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10028, United States

This tribute to a great collector reveals the distinctive features of Japanese art as viewed through the lens of fifty 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).
