Edo Aviary

Edo Aviary

February 2, 2013 – August 4, 2013

Museum: Freer Gallery of Art

Location: Gallery 6

Edo Aviary traces how depictions of birds, long part of the Japanese visual repertoire, were influenced by natural history painting in the Edo period. Great attention was given to physical accuracy, but the tendency to give birds anthropomorphic qualities also came to the fore.
