Exhibition catalogue with introduction by Oliver Impey and catalogue entries by Teresa Canepa; Twenty impressive pieces of namban art are explored in this catalogue from a rare pair of stirrups to an exceptional folding table and backgammon board. The so-called namban style of Japanese lacquer was made particularly for the European market. There are only a limited number of examples of namban art existing today and this catalogue illustrates an exciting and diverse range of objects that took years to collect.
