Simply Maki-e

Sep 10 at 10:00 am - Oct 16 at 5:00 pm

¥1,300

It was a maki-e lacquerware purchase that suddenly placed Nezu Kaichirō, Sr., in the limelight as a collector. He had long yearned to own Writing Box, known as Hana no Shirakawa, a famous Muromachi period (1392-1568) maki-e work. When it was being auctioned off in 1906, he acquired it for what was then an astonishingly high price. He continued to collect maki-e lacquerware for the rest of his life. This exhibition is the first opportunity to introduce, as a group, the superb maki-e works that Kaichirō collected. It includes many works of great significance in the history of maki-e from his richly varied collection. The exhibits are arranged by use, combined with brief introductions to the techniques used.

Student discounts available
