Approximately 150 works in various media from medieval times to the present are on view in this exhibition. Highlights include a unique, early 17th-century pair of ink-painted screens showing a flock of 120 mynah birds in flight or strutting on the shore; and a set of four enormous paintings of birds of prey by the 19th-century master Kawanabe Kyosai, each over nine feet high. Displays of paintings are juxtaposed with examples of modern and contemporary textiles, ceramics, lacquerware, and bamboo art. Drawn mostly from the Met Museum’s own collection, the exhibition features some 15 works on loan from private collections.
