Detail: In popular conception, samurai are often portrayed as those who have martial might, while their engagements in cultural activities are not as well represented.
Gentleman Warrior: Art of the Samurai offers a multifaceted view of the samurai culture. More than 20 works from the museum’s collection and two sets of samurai armor on loan will demonstrate the important roles samurai played in the tea ceremony, Noh theater, and Buddhist practices, as well as the art of armor and battles.
