One of the finest private collections of Japanese art in the United States will be on magnificent display at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.

Dr. John C. Weber, an avid New York collector, is lending more than 100 masterworks acquired during the last decade, when many important and rare objects entered the marketplace. The Weber collection premiered in 2006 at the Museum of East Asian Art, National Museums in Berlin, and was subsequently shown at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. As the exhibition’s final venue, the MIA offers museum-goers one final opportunity to savor these stunning works of art.

With a dazzling display of hanging scrolls, folding screens, sculpture, lacquers, textiles, and ceramics, Arts of Japan encompasses more than 900 years of technical and artistic innovation by Japanese artists. From opulent to quietly sublime, each object is distinguished by its exceptional artistry and breathtaking design.
