SLAM Examines the Art of War in Modern Japan

The St. Louis Art Museum is hosting “Conflicts of Interest: Art and War in Modern Japan,” an exhibit focusing on Meiji-period military art. The collection consists primarily of pieces depicting the Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895) and the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). It includes hanging scroll paintings, folding screens, textiles, games, and woodblock printmaking, a precursor of such modern art forms as manga. The exhibit represents 180 objects out of a larger collection of more than 1,400 pieces gifted to the museum from Charles and Rosalyn Lowenhaupt of St. Louis. There will be a symposium on Oct. 21st and 22nd. “Conflicts of Interest” opens October 16, 2016 and runs through January 8, 2016.
