Arts of Japan: The John C. Weber Collection

This
show was organized by the National Museums in Berlin, and comes to Minneapolis
via Boston. Weber, for his part, is a New Yorker-a doctor who’s no doubt made a
splash among collectors of Japanese art, having assembled what we’re told is a
world-class collection of objects-ranging from the twelfth century to the
twentieth-in just ten years. Ninety-five of those works make up this show:
scrolls and painted screens, lacquered bottles and ceramics, kimonos and
Buddhist calligraphies. In other words, pace yourself for this one.
