Turkey, being a major crossing point between East and West, has integrated many cultures leading to the creation of many works of unrivaled beauty. This exhibition of treasures from the collection of Istanbul’s Topkapi Palace Museum includes decorative and art-craft objects with the aesthetics and artistic perspectives of the Ottoman Empire. It highlights the friendly ties between Turkey and Japan by presenting works that were exchanged between the Ottoman sultans and Japan’s Imperial family, and other Meiji era art objects making a return visit to Japan.
