Shade of the Blossoming Cherry Tree
Selection of Japanese Art from Czech Collections
June 7 — September 29, 2013 
Kroměříž Archdiocesan Museum | Gallery
 
The core of the exhibition mainly consists of the collection of Japanese colour woodcuts from the estate of the painter Karel Svolinský (1896 –1986), now in the care of the Olomouc Museum of Art, which includes most of the significant topics of the 19th century Japanese woodcuts – figural motifs, landscape, flora and birds. The exhibition will also present the oriental part of the ivory collection of Archbishop Leopold Prečan (1866–1947) from the collections of the Olomouc Archdiocese, particularly the miniature ivory carvings called netsuke and okimono. Both collections to be shown in Olomouc will be complemented with attractive examples of woodcuts and netsuke art works, including some articles of traditional Japanese clothing, on loan from the rich collections of the National Museum – Náprstek Museum of Asian, African and American cultures.
