Golden Treasures: Japanese Gold Lacquer Boxes

4 November - 16 December 2022

We are delighted to invite you to our annual gallery exhibition of Japanese gold lacquer boxes dating from the 18th century to the present.


The exhibition features exceptional works with designs in maki-e, which literally means "sprinkled pictures" and refers to the technique of sprinkling powders of gold and silver onto wet lacquer, a uniquely Japanese tradition that developed in the Heian Period (794–1185).



The exhibition continues through December 16.

Opening hours:

Monday - Friday, by appointment
