This event has ended.

Ko-Garatsu ware is considered a treasure of Momoyama period, made traditionally in Kyushu from undecorated clay. Over his lifetime the first director of Idemitsu Museum of Art, Sazo Idemitsu, built the largest collection of Ko-Garatsu ware in Japan, comprised of over 300 items. Originally favored by tea ceremonies of the Momoyama period, Ko-Garatsu ware with its variety of styles continues to impress audiences even today, winning over top critics such as Hideo Kobayashi. This extensive exhibition will showcase 180 items, including many representative works from the Idemitsu collection.
