Weber’s interest in Japanese art started with his first Japanese work, a fan painting by Kitagawa Umaro, and by that, he began to collect a vast and diverse collection and gave MFA an unparalleled opportunity to present Japanese art in various media like the current exhibition in the Met Fifth Avenue ‘Kimono Style: The John C. Weber Collection.’


This exhibition will bring the transformation of the kimono from the late Edo period (1615–1868) through the early 20th century.  It will present over 60 kimonos alongside Western garments, paintings, prints, and decorative art objects. Feature a remarkable selection of works from the renowned John C. Weber Collection of Japanese art that explore the mutual artistic exchanges between the kimono and Western fashion.
