The samurai were the military class of Japan who developed from provincial warriors into the ruling elite. They were a powerful force in Japan for more than six centuries and so had a profound effect on military and political life. High ranking warriors were also expected to develop their literary skills and they played an active role as patrons of the arts. This exhibition explores the role of the samurai class as patrons and producers of the arts. It also examines the legacy of samurai culture which remains a potent source of inspiration in Japan - and the west - today.
