Treasures of the Fujita Museum: The Japanese Conception of Beauty
This event has ended.
Denzaburo Fujita, a Meiji-period entrepreneur, fearing that Buddhist works of art would be lost due to the anti-Buddhism movement of the early Meiji era, worked hard to preserve paintings, calligraphy, Buddhist images, and other works of art. A master of the tea ceremony, he had a discerning eye for tea objects and built an extraordinary collection of superb tea wares. The Fujita Museum opened in Osaka in 1954 to display the collection that Denzaburo and his sons built. This exhibition brings to Tokyo treasures from the Fujita Museum, which has one of the finest collections of East Asian art in Japan.
