A glorious display of the importance of animals and plants in Asian art, Flora and Fauna will feature a wide variety of art art works, including prayer rugs from the Middle East, statues from India, Chinese paintings, and much more. It will also mark the debut of the Ackland’s newly acquired pair of Japanese screens by the painter Kajino Genzan (1868–1939), dazzling with their gold leaf background, exquisite colors, and beautifully rendered flowers.
