Asia Week Gallery Exhibition Japanese Paintings and Works of Art
Asia Week in New York--March 14 through March 22 this year--is the city's greatest event for lovers of Asian art of every kind, with museum exhibitions, lectures, auctions, and over 50 gallery shows on the Upper East Side, across Manhattan, and beyond.
Our gallery exhibition during Asia Week, Japanese Paintings and Works of Art, features a dozen folding screens and hanging scrolls from the early 17th century through the middle of the 20th century, with many works that date from the Taisho era (1912-26), a time of great change for Japan and its arts when superb works were created for the domestic market, in contrast to the export-oriented output during the preceding Meiji era (1868-1912). Though most painters of the Taisho and early Showa eras typically remained focused on traditional themes, their work often experiments with new materials and perspectives and shows Western influences.
This year's display of Japanese paintings and works of art from is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog
