The Minneapolis Institute of Art, commonly known as MIA, was established in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1883 by the citizens and business people of Minneapolis. Today, MIA has a collection of more than 90,000 works of art from around the world, including a collection of approximately 2,500 ukiyo-e (woodblock prints), which is highly regarded internationally for its quality and size. In recent years, many Japanese paintings and artifacts have been donated by art lovers in the U.S., and the collection continues to evolve.

This exhibition introduces the evolution of Japanese painting from the Middle Ages to the modern era through a selection of fine works from the MIA collection of Japanese art. The lineup covers most of the major genres in the history of Japanese painting, with a focus on Edo painting, including ink painting, Kano School, Yamato-e, Rimpa School, Ukiyo-e, Bunjinga (Southern painting), Kikyosha, and modern painting.
