From November 2010, Sydney L. Moss Ltd. has two Japanese exhibitions on view, in celebration of the company's centenary year.
The first is a wide array of sagemono from well-known Californian collector Elly Nordskog. Her meticulously selected inrō, ojime and netsuke ensembles, as well as her remarkable pipecase collection, are on display, accompanied by our latest, and most lavish, Japanese catalogue celebrating the collection, ‘They Are All Fire and Every One Doth Shine’.
Alongside Elly Nordskog’s collection, works from our soon-to-be-published centenary catalogue ‘100 Years of Beatitude’ are also displayed. This exhibition includes paintings, sculpture, lacquer and selected sagemono with a focus on the underrated master Ogawa Haritsu (1663 - 1747).
