The Age of Imagination: Japanese Art, 1615–1868, from the Price Collection—Encore

Pavilion for Japanese Art
September 20, 2008–January 4, 2009

The Etsuko and Joe Price Collection is world-renowned for its collection of Japanese paintings of the Edo Period (1615–1868) featuring screens, hanging scrolls, and fan-format paintings. The Price Collection reflects the eclectic diversity of a remarkably creative span in Japan's history of visual art. Following the first installation of The Age of Imagination,which was on view at LACMA from June 22 to September 14, 2008, this exhibition features additional works shown during the Price Collection tour of Japan, including Soga Shohaku's Wild Horses, two seventh-century screens titled Cranes and Carriage Battle SceneTale of Genji, and Death of the Buddha by Nakamichi Sadasue.

The exhibition was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
