Paths of Gold: Japanese Landscape and Narrative paintings from the Collection

November 10, 2018  – February 10, 2019

The malleable interior of traditional Japanese houses could be redecorated to suit particular purposes — at times adorning with glistening screens and objects of color and gold. This exhibition explores the aesthetics of these public and private interiors by featuring folding screens, scrolls, and examples of lacquerware.
