Patterned Feathers, Piercing Eyes: Edo Masters from the Price Collection

November 10, 2007 – April 13, 2008

Museum: Arthur M. Sackler Gallery

Location: Sublevels 1 and 2

This selection of 109 Japanese Edo Period (1615-1868) paintings from the world renowned California-based collection of Joe and Etsuko Price, features screen, hanging scroll, and fan formats. The Price Collection reflects the eclectic diversity of a remarkably creative span in Japan's history of visual culture and some of the finest examples of the distinctive, hauntingly preternatural renderings of animal life by Ito Jakuchu (1716-1800).
