Spalding Gallery of Japan

See Edo Period wood block prints alongside cels from anime movies; vintage kimono alongside modern street fashion; centuries old ceramics alongside pieces by 20th and 21st century masters.

This gallery has been created in direct response to visitor interest in contemporary Japanese art and culture. Thanks to generous funding by the Art Fund, the Museum has been able to acquire a range of contemporary Japanese art, fashion and domestic goods that complement our historic Japanese collections.

Funding has been provided by the DCMS/Wolfson Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund and the Art Fund.

The gallery is named for Dr and Mrs HN Spalding, generous early supporters of the creation of the Oriental Museum.
