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).
