This event has ended.

From the late 16th century, a great quantity of lacquerware was exported as a special Japanese product. Lacquerware produced for Western orders included housewares decorated with “maki-e” and “raden” techniques. Focusing on how such lacquerware was exported, this exhibition looks at how these works and traditional decorations became facets of cultural exchange.
