Birds in the Art of Japan
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  The Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  Ongoing
 
Birds in the Art of Japan, a presentation of some 150 works in various media from medieval times to the present in which Japanese artists depict birds of every variety. Highlights include a unique, early seventeenth-century pair of ink-painted screens showing a flock of 120 mynah birds in flight or strutting on the shore; and a set of four enormous paintings of birds of prey by the nineteenth-century master Kawanabe Kyōsai, each over nine feet high. Displays of paintings will be juxtaposed with examples of modern and contemporary textiles, ceramics, lacquerware, and bamboo art.
