MFA Boston Features a New Exhibit Celebrating Japanese Culture
As a maker of museum-quality, custom frames, we feel privileged to be located in a city like Boston with such a vibrant art community. With institutions like the MFA, the ICA, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and many more, there is always a fascinating new exhibit opening! This Saturday, March 24, visit “The Allure of Japan” at the Museum of Fine Arts to experience beautiful art inspired by Japanese culture.
“A fascination for all things Japanese swept the United States in the period around 1900. An influx of Japanese goods and emissaries into America sparked a wave of interest in a foreign culture once seen as impossibly remote. Artists and collectors gathered Japanese objects, studied Japanese traditions, and integrated Japanese styles and techniques into their own work. ‘The Allure of Japan’ celebrates this cultural moment with a rich display of rarely exhibited American prints, posters, watercolors, and decorative arts complemented by a selection from the Museum’s renowned Japanese collections”
