The "V&A"'s greatest treasures from the Toshiba Gallery of Japanese Art shine in this newly updated overview of Japanese art from the last four centuries. The Museum's superb Japanese holdings, acquired over a period of 150 years, started with the international exhibitions of the second half of the nineteenth century and have grown to include exciting contemporary works by leading artists. The result is an unrivalled collection of Japan's achievements in art and design, with particular emphasis on ceramics, lacquer, textiles, prints and metalwork.
