JADA 2016: An Exhibition by the Japanese Art Dealers Association
Past exhibitions exhibition
Fletcher-Sinclair Mansion / Ukrainian Institute of America, 2 East 79th Street, New York NY
JADA 2016: An Exhibition by the Japanese Art Dealers Association of New York will be held at the Ukrainian Institute of America from Saturday, March 14 through Monday March 16. As in previous years, the emphasis is on the traditional arts of Japan from prehistoric times through the early 20th century.
We will be showing Places along the Tokaido Road, a rare pair of six-panel folding screens depicting scores of castles, towns, and natural features along the highway connecting Edo (present-day Tokyo) with Kyoto, the old capital. Painted in ink, mineral colors, gofun (white powdered shell), and gold on paper with gold leaf, the screens are outstanding for their detailed, almost cartographic, depiction and lively vignettes of the trials and pleasures of pre-modern Japan's main highway. Our other exhibits at JADA 2016 include ceramics, gold-lacquer boxes, and bamboo baskets.
