Reeds and Geese: Japanese Art from the Collection of George Gund III 

When: Sun., May 21 2017
Beginning in the 1200s, Chinese Chan (Zen) Buddhist monks transformed the visual landscape of Japan by importing visually compelling and useful objects, as well as ink paintings, calligraphy and poetry. The Cleveland Museum of Art pays tribute to this influential cultural shift with Reeds and Geese: Japanese Art from the Collection of George Gund III. Opening in the Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Gallery this Sunday, May 21, the exhibition is the first time since 2000 that a major selection of works from this collection will be on view. Highlights include ink paintings and ceramics associated with tea culture, as well as a rare early Japanese ink painting, titled Reeds and Geese (from which the exhibition takes its name), inscribed by Chinese émigré monk Yishan Yining between 1314 and 1317. Reeds and Geese remains on view through September 3. Free. (Usmani)
