Styled with Poise: Figures in Japanese Paintings and Prints


Regal courtiers, lively townspeople, tragic heroines, and virtuous deities, are presented in exquisite form in this exhibition featuring figures in Japanese art. Styled with Poise: Figures in Japanese Paintings and Prints displays art from the Edo period (1603–1868), when a wide range of painting styles and significant developments in woodblock printmaking made visual art accessible to many in Japan.

This exhibition draws together a variety of paintings and printed works to explore these many types of figures and figural representation in Japanese art, and will feature unique works from the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and from private collections in Boston and Dallas.

Styled with Poise:  Figures in Japanese Paintings and Prints will be on view from July 8, 2017-January 7, 2018 in Gallery I.
