This exhibition reflects the main trends in Japanese graphic art in the early 20th century, through the collections of Bishop Count Peter Vay.

’Commissioned by the Pope to visit Roman Catholic missions throughout the world, Bishop Count Peter Vay first set foot on Japanese soil in Protected content . Aside from completing his primary tasks for the church, he offered to put together a collection of Japanese watercolours, drawings, and prints for the Museum of Fine Arts during his stay. The most significant items in this collection are woodblock prints, and scroll paintings’. (based on the museum website)

Aside from seeing a lovely collection of Japanese art, you can also enjoy a little walk or rest, in the Asian-inspired garden behind the museum.

LUNCH: If you would like to join us for lunch after the exhibition, please set aside an additional Protected content for that activity too. Time flies when we are having fun!

Looking forward to a great program together!
