The Corfu Museum of Asian Art in Corfu, Greece, is pleased to organize the exhibition entitled ‘Beauty in Detail: Japanese Art Dolls by Ohno Hatsuko’ which will be open to the public from the 7th of June until the 30th of October 2013.

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.

The exhibition will display 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 inauguration of the exhibition will take place on Friday, 7th of June 2013, at 19:30. The exhibition will be accompanied by a special lecture, where Mrs. Mori Mika will speak about the meaning and importance of traditional doll making in Japan and the roll her mother played in the figurative doll making movement.
