The Time to Spend in an Art Museum exhibitions, which began last year, constitute a series of Shiseido Collection exhibitions that give visitors the chance to enjoy art in an intimate and familiar manner. These exhibitions introduce the Shiseido Art House’s unique collection, which broadly ranges from Japanese paintings to oil paintings and a host of traditional craft works.

This year, the exhibition season will be divided into two halves. The first half will be exhibiting a special selection of vintage perfume bottles and Japanese paintings, while the second half will feature examples of modern ceramic art, metalwork, and oil paintings.

Modern craft works will consist of ceramic art by Shoji Kamoda and Yagi Kazuo, as well as metalwork created by both Shiro Naito (now recognized as a Living National Treasure in the field of metal carving) and Yohei Yoshiha III.
