Event Description

Japan Style: Netsuke From the collection of Charles Trent Pronounced “nets-keh”, these small, intricately carved sculptural objects made of ivory, wood, metal, or ceramic, were originally used as a button-like fixture on a man’s sash, from which small personal belongings were hung. The netsuke eventually developed into highly coveted and collectible art forms. Trent’s delightful collection holds over 100 netsuke art forms. Today we see a broad range from “folk art” carvings to levels of sophisticated fine art and exists as such today with true master-carvers from all over the world still creating these little masterpieces. 2nd & 3rd Floor Foyer Galleries.
