From the Museum Collection: What About the Periphery?
Ishibashi Museum of Art (石橋美術館)
1015, Nonaka-machi, Kurume-shi, 839-0862 Fukuoka, Japan
Following What About the Provenance? held last year, this is the second of the What About series.
Facing a picture in a museum, what you are looking at is, of course, the picture, However, isn’t there something that more or less always comes into sight together with the picture that catches your attention? Yes, the frame. This time, works are introduced with focus on “the periphery of the picture,” that is to say, the frame or the mount of a hanging scroll. There are approximately 100 works on display from the collections of Ishibashi Museum of Art and Bridgestone Museum of Art.
