*There is a possibility that this exhibition's schedule may be modified in order to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.

September 18 (Sat. )- November 7 (Sun. ), 2021

Term1: September 18 (Sat. )-October 10 (Sun. )
Term2: October 12 (Tue. )-November 7 (Sun. )

 

For the very first time, we are able to present artworks related to the Imperial Family in Sendai.

In 1876 and 1881, Emperor Meiji (1852-1912)  traveled from Tokyo to the Tohoku region for extensive tours of the region. These travels brought the Imperial Family and the people of Tohoku closer to one another and provided them with the opportunity to learn about each other.

Subsequent visits by successive Emperors and members of the Imperial Family, as well as a deep connection with the Prince of Chichibu (1902-53), illustrate the many ties between the Imperial Family and Tohoku. These ties can also be found in the collection of the Museum of the Imperial Collections, Sannomaru Shozokan, managed by the Imperial Household Agency.

This exhibition focuses on artists and artworks associated with the various prefecture of Tohoku, including crafts made with traditional techniques from each region, and introduces artworks that convey the ties between the Imperial Family and different parts of Tohoku. In addition, there are also folding screens originally displayed at the Imperial Palace in Kyoto during the Edo period (1603–1868), interior decorations for palaces and other buildings from the Meiji era (1868–1912), masterpieces commissioned for imperial ceremonies, and representative works by various artists. We hope you will take the opportunity to enjoy the artworks that come in diverse forms of beauty and have been passed down by the Imperial Family.
