Japan’s artistic production reveals the originality of what developed from the merging of refined traditional craftsmanship with an almost religious respect for the intrinsic qualities of materials, together with a willingness to welcome outside elements issued from the highest levels of cultural expression.
Buddhist-inspired statues (from the twelfth to the seventeenth century) can be found in the rooms dedicated to Japan, together with magnificent screens from the early seventeenth century, paintings and polychrome woodblock prints and a rich collection of finely worked lacquer objects.
