Currently on view is the exhibition Meiji Modern: Fifty Years of New Japan.
Comprising over 80 works, this exhibition reevaluates a seminal era of turmoil, transformation, and creativity in Japan spanning the mid-nineteenth to early-twentieth centuries. Included are paintings, prints, photographs, sculptural works, and objects in various media—such as enamel, lacquer, embroidery, and textiles—representing some of the finest examples of Meiji-period artworks in American collections, both public and private. Organized by the Japanese Art Society of America.
