Japanese Art Dolls by Ohno Hatsuko

Corfu Museum of Asian Art in Corfu

An exquisite exhibition has been open since June at the Corfu Museum of Asian Art in Corfu, Greece, and will run through the 30th of October 2013. The exhibition ‘Beauty in Detail: Japanese Art Dolls by Ohno Hatsuko’ displays modern Japanese art dolls made by Ohno Hatsuko (1915-1982), celebrating the heritage and mastery of doll making practice in Japan. Her work demonstrates absolute technical precision and artistic sensitivity. Each doll reveals the whimsical human character with warmth and humour.

The exhibition is organized in collaboration with Ohno Hatsuko’s daughter, Mori Mika and the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures. Curator of the exhibition is Mrs. Despina Zernioti, Director of the Corfu Museum of Asian Art.
