CHRYSANTHEMUM AND DRAGON:
THE ART OF ORNAMENTATION IN JAPAN AND CHINA IN THE 17TH – 19TH CENTURY

18th March to 31st August, 2019

Chrysanthemum and Dragon: The Art of Ornamentation in Japan and China in the 17th – 19th Century opens on the 18th March 2019 and runs until the 31st August, 2019. The exhibition will offer an insight into the differing yet equally lavish arts and crafts movements in China and Japan during the 17th to 19th century. Featuring over 180 Japanese objects – including the portable stationery, yatate; and the kiseru tobacco pipe, in addition to over 50 objects from the museum's classical Ming and Qing dynasties furniture collection, Chrysanthemum and Dragon is one of the largest exhibitions to explore the shared decorative traditions of China and Japan, allowing visitors to compare the craftsmanship of both cultures side-by-side.

The exhibition is supported by The Consulate-General of Japan in Hong Kong.
