Exquisite paintings on scrolls and golden screens by Japan’s greatest artists of the ‘golden’ Edo period (1603–1868) beguile with their vision of the pleasures and fantasies of life under shogun-ruled Japan. Drawn from private collections across Japan, this exhibition offers a unique chance to encounter rare images of an enchanted world, long hidden from Western eyes.
We invite all Gallery Members to attend the Members Preview of this major exhibition on Saturday 7 March. The exhibition will be open from 10 to 12pm, followed by a 30-minute talk by our new Senior Curator, International Art, Dr Sophie Matthiesson at 12pm in the Gallery Auditorium. Seating for the talk is on a first-come-first-served basis (booking not required).
