More than Meets the Eye: Japanese Art in the Asia Society Collection


In the spring of 1998, the Asia Society offered a rare opportunity to view Japanese art of the highest quality from the Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller 3rd Collection.

Here we present a virtual exhibition of more than 25 objects in the collection. Visitors can select either an interactive QuickTime tour or a more linear progression through the exhibition.

For the exhibition the Asia Society also asked the scholars Sylvan Barnet and William Burto to update their authoritative bibliography of Japanese Art, A Reader's Guide to the Arts of Japan, for our website.
