from the Museum of the Imperial Collections, Sannomaru Shozokan

From June 4, the Seto City Art Museum is exhibiting masterworks from Sannomaru Shozokan, the Museum of the Imperial Collections, to celebrate its 40th anniversary in a special exhibition entitled The 40th Opening Anniversary Special Exhibition of Seto City Art Museum:Imperial Masterpieces -Supreme Crafts Related to Aichi -from the Museum of the Imperial Collections, Sannomaru Shozokan. Sannomaru Shozokan manages, preserves, and exhibits works of art that have been passed down from generation to generation in the Imperial Household, and in this exhibition presents a selection of works closely connected to Seto and Aichi prefecture from this superb collection. The exhibition features works by artists deeply connected to Seto who were either born in or had their kilns in the area. The exhibition also features Owari Cloisonne enamelware, a traditional craft from Aichi that has not only been appreciated in Japan, but has earned high praise abroad as well. Some of the works introduced in this exhibition have never been exhibited at Sannomaru Shozokan before, and will be on display for the first time in this exhibition. We hope that you will enjoy the exhibition’s many masterworks, in which the artisans of Seto and Aichi have poured their heart and soul.
