Golden Treasures: Japanese Gold Lacquer Boxes

Gallery Exhibition, November 22-January 31, 2022

Thomsen Gallery's current exhibition features exceptional Japanese gold-lacquer boxes dating from the 18th century to the present. You are warmly invited to visit and view the unique art works in person. The masterworks in the exhibition are all examples of maki-e, which literally means "sprinkled pictures" and refers to the technique of sprinkling powders of gold and silver onto wet lacquer, a distinctly Japanese tradition that developed in the Heian Period (794 – 1185).
