Japanese Art-Cleveland Museum of Art
The collection comprises over 1,950 works spanning approximately 5,000 years and includes masterworks of painting, sculpture, and prints, as well as ceramics, metalwork, and other decorative arts.
The Japanese calligraphy and painting collection is impressive in its breadth, from sacred texts executed in silver and gold characters on dyed paper to expansive ink-painted vistas once intended for sliding door panels.
Its selection of folding screen paintings covers many of the major genres, from bird-and-flower compositions to festival scenes, and includes examples by artists such as Sesson Shukei (c. 1504–c. 1589) and Maruyama Okyo (1733–1795).
The collection also contains notable works of early Buddhist and Shinto art.
