Nearly 100 extraordinary examples of kimono created between the 1890s and the 1950s tell the story of how Japan's traditional national dress was influenced by technological advances in silk production and exposure to Western cultures.


This nationally touring exhibition brings together nearly 100 extraordinary examples of kimono-Japan's traditional national dress-from the famed Montgomery Collection in Lugano, Switzerland. Included are everyday garments; intricately embroidered ceremonial robes; boys' kimono stenciled with cars, airplanes and battleships; and colorful Art Deco patterns heralding the emergence of Japan's "new woman."

All were created between the 1890s and the 1950s, a dynamic period when technological advances in silk making and the influence of Western styles resulted in an explosion of bold and vibrant designs.

This exhibition is organized and circulated by Art Services International, Alexandria, VA. Support for the national tour and catalog has been provided by The E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation. In Rochester, the exhibition is made possible by the Gallery Council of the Memorial Art Gallery and the Robert L. and Mary L. Sproull Fund.
