This exhibition is rooted in the historical, visual, and cultural connections between Carnegie Museum of Art’s collection of traditional Japanese prints (ukiyo-e) and Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s collection of Japanese ivories (okimono). Both Pittsburgh collections originated in the early years of the 20th century, motivated by the West’s acceptance of Japan as an emerging modern power, and the aesthetic appeal of Japanese art to Western artists and collectors. In 1905 Carnegie Institute’s department of fine arts (predecessor of Carnegie Museum of Art) mounted its first exhibition of Japanese printsundefined95 examples from the collection of poet and critic Sadakichi Hartmannundefinedand in 1910 it displayed in the Museum a selection of H. J. Heinz’s rapidly growing collection of ivories. This exhibition will fulfill Carnegie Institute’s original vision for Japanese art: a gallery of the combined collections exemplifying aspects of Japanese culture most relevant to the modern West.
