Event Description

Screen paintings depicting Europeans in Japan (nanban byōbu) have long been admired for their vivid portrayals of the brief encounter between Japan and Europe in the Age of Exploration. Explore these images from Japan's "Christian Century" with Prof. Matthew McKelway (Columbia University), who will address questions of artistic competition and collaboration, and the thematic adjustments that underlie what these works of art say about their time and audience.

This lecture is the second in a three-part series organized in conjunction with Hiroshi Sugimoto: Gates of Paradise.
