A Brush with Beauty

Japanese Paintings in Ink, Color, and Gold

A Brush with Beauty

The Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields has one of the best collections of Edo period (1600-1868) Japanese paintings in the United States. This exhibition will feature the best of the Edo collection, as well as masterpieces across 700 years of Japanese painting. The rich collection features signature paintings by important artists from all the major schools of Japanese painting and will form the centerpiece of a year of exhibitions and programs (indoors and out) inspired by Japan. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
