The Vidigueira Treasure. Namban and Other Lacquers

One room, two exhibitions. Involving a necessary cross-disciplinary approach, the research projects being undertaken into the remarkable Vidigueira Treasure and the sophisticated world of lacquers (based on an example of the highly refined Namban Art) are presented as case studies that illustrate this process while, at the same time, providing new and important information about the actual creation of these pieces.
