    The second of two Asian Art exhibitions this year examines a crucial period in Japanese history (1603-1868) when Japanese artists reconfigured previous conventions and adapted foreign influences to create innovative artistic styles and forms. The exhibition is part of the College and University Art Museums Collection- Sharing Project developed by the Yale University Art Gallery and funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. SCMA is one of six academic partner museums invited to develop exhibitions from Yale’s extensive holdings.
