Imari Porcelain: Brocades of Translucent Colour
During the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries the reclusive island nation of Japan became internationally recognised for one treasured product beyond all others: Imari porcelain. The current exhibition at the NGV is the first major exhibition of Imari ware in Australia and displays leading examples of Imari kinrande wear, Kakiemon ware and Hirado ware. Many of these works are the only examples of their design in existence or are comparable to pieces in leading Japanese museums. The funds to acquire this collection were donated to the NGV by the connoisseur and philanthropist Mrs Pauline Gandel.
Join Wayne Crothers, Senior Curator of Asian Art at the NGV for a special viewing of the exhibition Imari Porcelain: Brocades of Translucent Colour.
Bookings: Required by 1st March to email@example.com
