Catalogue of the Feinberg Collection of Japanese Art
A collection of masterpieces of Edo-period Japanese paintings
Over more than four decades, Robert and Betsy Feinberg have assembled the finest private collection of Edo-period Japanese painting in the United States. The collection is notable for its size, its remarkable quality, and its comprehensiveness.
It represents virtually every stylistic lineage of the Edo-period (1615-1868)-from the gorgeous decorative works of the Rinpa school to the luminous clarity of the Maruyama-Shijo school, from the "pictures of the floating world" (ukiyo-e) to the inky innovations of the so-called eccentrics-in addition to sculpture from the medieval and early modern periods.
Hanging scrolls, folding screens, handscrolls, albums, and fan paintings: the objects are as breathtaking as they are varied. This catalogue's 12 contributors, including established names in the field alongside emerging voices, use the latest scholarship to offer sensitive close readings that bring these remarkable works to life.
