These superb holdings, acquired over a period of 150 years, started with the international exhibitions of the second half of the nineteenth century and have grown to include exciting contemporary work by leading artists. The result is an unrivalled collection of Japan's achievements in art and design, with a particular emphasis on ceramics, lacquer, textiles, prints and metalwork.
