Painting Edo at the Arnold Arboretum: Japanese Black Pine

December 1, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

"Painting Edo" at the Arnold Arboretum is a collaboration between the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University and the Harvard Art Museums, inspired by the exhibition "Painting Edo: Japanese Art from the Feinberg Collection." Observing artworks from the exhibition alongside the living collections of the Arnold Arboretum, we invite you to marvel at the remarkable accuracy and spirit with which artists of the Edo period (1615–1868) rendered their botanical subjects.

In this online talk, curator Rachel Saunders and William (Ned) Friedman of the Arnold Arboretum, will discuss the Japanese black pine (黒松 kuromatsu), or Pinus thunbergii. After Rachel takes a close look at a dynamic painted specimen by Itō Jakuchū 伊藤若冲 (1716–1800) in the Feinberg Collection, Ned will bring viewers into the landscape of the Arnold Arboretum to learn about the live specimen’s unique characteristics.

Led by:

Rachel Saunders, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Curator of Asian Art, Harvard Art Museums

William (Ned) Friedman, Director of the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University
