This event has ended.

Presenting more than 160 carefully selected works from the Weber collection, starting with a wide range of Japanese art including Muromachi ink paintings, ukiyo-e and other Edo-period works, as well as Meiji-period paintings, ancient Jōmon through early-modern ceramics, negoro lacquerware with makie with gold and silver powder, and early modern kimonos and textiles. Also on exhibit are works of Chinese art such as ancient bronzes, Tang-dynasty sancai (three-color ceramics), and figurines, as well as and Byzantine art gifted to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Rembrandt’s etchings, which were part of the early collection, will also be on display. This special autumn exhibition realized in part through the friendship of Dr. John C. Weber and Miho Museum director Professor Tsuji Nobuo, is the first time for works already donated to the Metropolitan Museum to be exhibited, and the first time for the Weber Collection to be shown in Japan.
