Untamed Beauty: Tigers in Japanese Art presents paintings by twenty-one Japanese artists, many of whom are among the most famous painters of the last three hundred years. Tigers are not indigenous to Japan but their absence spurred fanciful ideas about their nature and physical form. The idea of such giant, powerful cats so captivated Japanese imaginations that they produced innumerable paintings of them over the course of their history – most without the benefit of firsthand observation.
