When Pictures Speak

Asian Art Museum

When Pictures Speak: The Written Word in Japanese Art. Words and pictures are often combined in Japanese art, to celebrate poems and stories, express religious teachings, and comment on current events. Though not unique to Japan, the marriage of text and image has flourished there, finding relevance within each new generation of artists, writers, and patrons.
