Recent Acquisitions in Japanese Art

July 15, 1992–July 15, 1993

The three Japanese galleries on the second floor will be installed with paintings, sculpture, ceramics, lacquer, and metalwork acquired over the past five years. Included is a magnificent early 17th-century lacquered writing box with a design of a deer in autumn, a recent gift of the Friends of the Museum. It is attributed to Honami Koetsu (1558-1637), a famed calligrapher, sword connoisseur, potter, tea master, lacquer designer and founder of an artists colony. A poem-scroll by Koetsu is also on view along with other important calligraphies.
