Chrysanthemum and Dragon: The Art of Ornamentation in Japan and China in the 17th–19th Century

Mar 18 – Aug 31, 2019
181 -199 Hollywood Rd, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

Chinese and Japanese decorative arts of the 17th to 19th centuries—luxe objects, but of a practical nature (writing utensils and stationary, smoking pipes, brush pots)—will be shown side-by-side in an exhibition that examines the cross-cultural influences between these two countries, their artistic techniques, and their attitudes toward Western societies. —C.J.F.
