The almost industrial-like architecture of The National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto gives away no hints of the treasures on display within. Once you step inside though, over 300 items of exceptional beauty are presented in a passionate East-meets-West embrace. “Mastery of an Art: Van Cleef & Arpels – High Jeweller and Japanese Crafts“ brings together these two worlds in a singular objective: to celebrate skilled Japanese and French craftsmanship.
We recently had the opportunity to travel to Kyoto to see this magnificent exhibition for ourselves. It was an eye-opening and inspiring experience, to say the least. Enjoy this exclusive video taking you inside the walls of The National Museum of Modern Art to explore the realm of fine craftsmanship through the lens of Japanese and French masters.
