Public Lecture: Hollis Goodall
In conjunction with the exhibition Paths of Gold: Japanese Landscape and Narrative Paintings from the Collection, this lecture explores the theme of “famous places” in Japanese art, highlighting important landmarks, as well as flora and fauna scenes that were featured on Japanese folding screens. During the Edo period (1615–1868), nobles, samurai, and wealthy merchants often commissioned images of “famous places” and seasonal motifs for special occasions, private home use, or public displays. Goodall’s talk considers not only the physical beauty of the subject, but also the hidden stimuli behind their creation.
Hollis Goodall is the co-curator of the Paths of Gold exhibition with Susan Tai, Elizabeth Atkins Curator of Asian Art.
