CATALOGUE

This exhibition 'Beyond Imagination: Treasures of Imperial Japan from the Khalili Collection, 19th to Early 20th Century' and accompanying catalogue give a shot but revealing insight into the world's most extensive, significant and comprehensive private collection of Japanese art from the Meiji period (1868-1912). Collected with passion and knowledge over approximately five decades by renowned scholar and academic Professor Nasser David Khalili, and comparable in its extent only to that held by the Japanese Imperial family, the Collection contains outstanding art works made at a time of great upheaval in Japan's history and reveals a superlative craftsmanship, the like of which has never since been repeated. The catalogue includes eighty-two works of Japanese art of the nineteenth and early twentieth century from the Collection of Professor Nasser David Khalili. The material is arranged in three parts, each of which brings together a diverse range of objects united by a common theme.
