MIGHTY MEIJI METALS: SCULPTURE FROM 19th CENTURY JAPAN at THE TRAMMEL & MARGARET CROW COLLECTION OF ASIAN ART, Dallas
 
Japan’s Meiji period (1868-1911) was a change from a feudalistic society to a modern one;  the Tokugawa shogunate came to an end; the capital was moved from Kyoto to Edo/Tokyo; and artists made striking and impressive  pieces to show off at European and American world trade fairs.  The Crow displays from its own collection several imposing bronze sculptures including incense burners,  a carved and lacquered wood with precious metals screen, and ceramics and enamel ware “draped in liquid gold”. On view through June 12, 2011.
