Art History

Noh theater has been performed in Japan since the fourteenth century. Early Noh costumes paralleled the everyday wear of the samurai, until the fifteenth century, when certain garments arose specifically for the Noh stage. During the Edo period (16151868), the Tokugawa shogunate officially sponsored Noh, and feudal barons throughout the realm supported Noh troupes. A sumptuous eighteenth-century Noh costume in the Museum's collection features Japanese ivy leaves, windows, and incense wrappers embroidered in multicolored silk on an overall background of gold leaf. Usually worn for the role of a woman in Noh theater, such robes are called nuihaku because they are decorated with both embroidery (nui-) and the application of metallic leaf (- haku). Japanese ivy is known for its intense change of color in autumn.
