Journey through Japanese cultural history, from the feudal past to the pop-centric present

This 10-week course is inspired by the MFA’s superlative collection of Japanese works—the largest in the world outside Japan—and the spectacular artistry found in the exhibition “Samurai! Armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection,” opening in the Gund Gallery on April 14. Journey through Japanese cultural history, from the feudal past to the pop-centric present.
