Toledo Museum features another world class exhibit

Posted: Updated:

The Toledo Museum of Art is home to some of the most spectacular art in the world and that includes a collection of tiny Japanese sculptures. In fact, thanks to new gallery space the entire collection is on view together for the very first time. It is one of the top collections of its kind in North America. TMA has hundreds of the little sculptures called netsuke. They depict everything from animals and people to every day objects and mythical creatures. The museum has been working on the collection since the 1920's but hundreds of pieces were donated by one man since the 1980's. Richard Silverman is from Toledo but he now lives in Los Angeles. the other American museum with a top netsuke collection is the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
