Four hundred objects go on public display for the first time in the newly refurbished Toshiba Gallery of Japanese Art at the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London. More than 550 items dating from the sixth century to today are on show, including 30 new acquisitions.

The gallery initially opened in 1986, and houses works from the V&A’s collection of Japanese art and design which was founded in the 19th century.

A completely refurbished Toshiba Gallery of Japanese Art is slated to reopen at the V&A this November as part of the museum’s ongoing “FuturePlan” scheme to provide its collections with updated, contemporary settings.

First inaugurated in December 1986, the Toshiba Gallery of Japanese Art was the first significant gallery in the UK devoted to Japan. Come November, the refurbished gallery will show some 550 pieces with a newly conceived curatorial framework, led by the V&A’s senior curator of Japan Rupert Faulkner.
