Ceramics of the Silk Road/The Art of Kato Takuo
A major retrospective exhibition of the late Living National Treasure Kato Takuo(1917-2004) just finished showing in his native Gifu prefecture and now makes one more stop in Okayama at the Okayama Orient Musuem from April 1-May 7. The exhibition features works made throughout Kato's brilliant career and also many ancient wares that inspired/hypnotized Kato. A fine catalog was printed for the exhibition, in Japanese only though. The museum's very basic web site in English can be viewed at:
Please note the two photos of Kato are from the catalog.
