Threads Of Silk and Gold: Ornamental Textiles from Meiji Japan

9 Nov - 27 Jan 2013. The Ashmolean presents an exhibition of rare ornamental textiles made for western homes during Japan’s Meiji era (1868–1912).

The sumptuous textiles were produced during the Japonisme period whose artwork inspired Europe's Impressionist painters and whose decorative arts and crafts were highly fashionable among Victorian collectors.

The exhibition is the first of its kind to be held outside Japan and features 40 examples of Meiji textiles from the newly-acquired collection of the Kiyomizu-Sannenzaka Museum in Kyoto.

Tues-Wed 10.00-17.00. Thurs-Sat 10.00-19.00. Sun 12.00-17.00. Mon closed.
