Images from the Exhibit
In 2012, the Chinese art collector Mr. Matsui Hirotsugu donated fifty-nine ceramics, thirteen archaeological artifacts, and two sculptures to the Kyoto National Museum. This exhibition honors his extraordinarily generous gift.
Ceramics, especially those of the Qing dynasty, make up the core of the Matsui Collection. The Chinese developed techniques to produce a rich range of glaze colors and forms through innovations in materials and kiln technology.
In addition, the Matsui Collection also includes archaic Chinese bronzes and other metal objects, as well as sculptures. We gratefully welcome these outstanding works into the museum collection knowing they will provide delight and inspiration to our visitors.
