Modern Japanese Lacquer

Rijksmuseum
Museumstraat 1,
Amsterdam, Netherlands
Jul 01, 2021 To Sep 04, 2021


Detail: There’s something magical about Japanese lacquer art. The decorations are made with exceptional care and skill using dozens of layers of lacquer in a process that takes months if not years.

In this exhibition, traditional depictions in gold, silver and black form the departure point for a journey into modernity, creativity and exuberant colours. The almost seventy objects on display trace this development in the early 20th century.
