Final assignment: Museums to choose from: First, navigate your way to the Japanese section of your chosen Museum’s website. Then, browse at leisure through the pages of the Japanese art online catalogue and enjoy what strikes your particular taste as beautiful, interesting and/or meaningful. Next, read the following assignment questions and browse through the online catalogue again, taking detailed notes (including the catalogue information on the identifying tag) to answer all questions. Hint 1: and are not be appropriate choices for objects that could be found in the interiors depicted in the literature of this course because those items are used in a style of kimono dressing that is especially from the Tokugawa or Edo era (1600-1868) and thus much later and different than how the Heian Court community dressed. Hint 2: objects for the Tea Ceremony are also not appropriate to the literature of this course because the tea ceremony developed after the Heian period in the Muromachi period in the form we recognize today with powdered green tea, the ritualized passing of the tea bowl to guests, etc.  When tea is mentioned in the literature of the Classical period, it is referring to the ‘tea ceremony.’ Hint 3: both woodblock prints and the kabuki theater become popular in the Tokugawa period (1600-1868) and thus are not a part of the worlds depicted in Classical Japanese Literature.  On the other hand, some (many!) woodblock prints may depict scenes from Classical Japanese Literature, or allude to characters such as those in or while reinterpreting them in Tokugawa-period fashions. Write up your answers in graceful and coherent language, and upload to our course website.  Each item discussed must have a header with the museum name, museum identification information of item name, artist, dates, material information, catalogue number and collection or donation information.  Your write-up must be a minimum of 250 words (approx. 1 page) of your own language (not counting catalogue info or language from my assignment prompts.)
