ART EXHIBITION: Painting Edo: Japanese Art from the Feinberg Collection
Painting Edo – the largest exhibition ever presented at the Harvard Art Museums – offers a window onto the supremely rich visual culture of Japan’s early modern era. Selected from the unparalleled collection of Robert S. and Betsy G. Feinberg, the more than 120 works in the exhibition connect visitors with a seminal moment in the history of Japan, as the country settled into an era of peace under the warrior government of the shoguns and opened its doors to greater engagement with the outside world.
