MAB is pleased to present LAND OF THE RISING SUN, featuring masterworks of Japanese art. This exhibition brings together a broad range of fine and decorative artworks and objects on loan from museum-quality private collections located in the Susquehanna Valley, PA. Highlights include: rare monumental porcelains; richly patinated large-scale bronzes from the famed Tokyo School; impressive Ko-Kutani, Imari, Satsuma, and Arita ceramic wares, and the rarest of all Edo period Japanese ceramics, Ko-Kiyomisu; Edo and Meiji period paintings and folding screens; fine examples of Japanese lacquerware; important ceremonial tea wares; and works made specifically for the Japanese Emperor and Royal Court.

Works on view in LAND OF THE RISING SUN showcase the various distinctive characteristics found in Japanese art: a deep respect for the natural world; an appreciation of an object’s materiality; a tendency towards both austerity and complexity; highly refined spiritual and religious metaphors; impeccable craftsmanship across a range of materials; and a deep respect for the everyday world of human endeavor, as showcased in the exquisite attention to realistic detail depicting the common person performing day-to-day rituals found in Tokyo School bronzes.
