Meiji, Splendors of Imperial Japan (1868-1912)

Highlighting the turbulent Meiji Period, the exhibition will introduce art from the period through a wide variety of works, from modern Western- and Japanese-style paintings to handicrafts and textiles.

A Meiji era themed art exhibition will be held at the Guimet Museum marking the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the Meiji Period while also commemorating the centennial of the death of Emile Guimet, founder of the museum.
The Meiji Period was an important period of reform across all fields in Japan, particularly culture. This exhibition highlights the art from a turbulent time in Japan.
To reignite appreciation for unknown Japanese works of art found in French collections, the exhibition will display Ukiyoe, Japanese-style paintings, oil paintings, pottery, lacquerware, metalwork and textiles. The French collection will be augmented with additional works from collections elsewhere in Europe.
