Exhibition at the Ariana Museum, Swiss Museum of Ceramics and Glass, Geneva (11 December 2020 - 9 January 2022).
On show for the first time in its entirety, this outstanding body of work traces the compelling history of developments in techniques and styles (blue and white, Imari, Kakiemon, Nabeshima, Satsuma and Kutani) in the Land of the Rising Sun. The main production centres represented offer a vast overview of Japanese ceramics.
Marked by both foreign influences and traditions, these articles for daily or ceremonial use, figurines and large-scale pieces were mainly designed for the export market. From their arrival in Europe in the 17th century to the Universal Exhibitions of the 19th century, these objects have never ceased to fascinate Westerners.
This Genevan public collection had not previously been the subject of a specific study.
The exhibition catalogue, produced with the assistance of renowned experts from Europe and Japan, intends to fill this gap.
