Edo Painting: Japanese Art from the Feinberg Collection

Exhibition February 14 − July 26, 2020
"Edo Painting"- the largest exhibition ever presented at the Harvard Museum of Art - opens a window into the extremely rich visual culture of the early modern Japanese era.

Selected from the unprecedented collection of Robert Feinberg, more than 120 works presented at the exhibition connect visitors to the original moment in the history of Japan, when the country entered the era of peace under the government of the shogun warriors and opened its doors to greater interaction with the outside world.

The stunning set of art lines and studios operating during the Edo period (1615–1868) contributed to the enormous expansion of Japanese pictorial culture, which was also reflected in the history of painting in the West.
