Golden Treasures: Japanese Gold Lacquer Boxes

November 4-December 16, 2022

Thomsen Gallery is delighted to open their annual gallery exhibition of Japanese gold lacquer boxes dating from the 18th century to the present.

The exhibition features exceptional works with designs in maki-e, which literally means "sprinkled pictures" and refers to the technique of sprinkling powders of gold and silver onto wet lacquer, a uniquely Japanese tradition that developed in the Heian Period (794–1185).
