“Flora and Fauna in Japanese Art” Celebrates the Natural World at SLAM

    In the East Asian rotating gallery at the Saint Louis Art Museum, a small celebration of nature and seasonal change manifests through hanging scrolls and ceramics with a gorgeous folding screen as a center piece. “Flora and Fauna in Japanese Art” explores the traditional theme within Japanese Art of depicting animals, insects, plants, and flowers, usually with an emphasis on seasonality. It is an apt theme for a gallery which rotates every six months in order to protect delicate paper and silk objects from damage due to light and exposure. The exhibition is located in the main building and will be open through March 24, 2019.
