Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics was a major exhibition at Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The catalogue presents key examples of Murakami’s work alongside a rich selection of Japanese masterpieces spanning several centuries and arranged here according to concepts laid out by Japanese art historian Professor. Nobuo Tsuji.

Through its fresh, contemporary typographic treatment and the choices of vibrant colors, the combination of old and new shows how contemporary art can be seen as part of a continuum or lineage.
