Asian Art

The Allen Memorial Art Musem’s Asian collection is perhaps best known for its more than 1700 Japanese woodblock prints.  The collection also includes a number of fine Chinese, Japanese and Korean paintings and decorative arts, spanning the centuries from ancient to contemporary, as well as an outstanding collection of carpets.
