  • Acquisition
    Donated by Feliks Jasieński (1861-1929). He was a Polish collector, connoisseur, critic and music lover, and an outstanding personality. His interests in art and music, as well as his personal intellectual and social qualities, brought him close to the artistic elite of Paris, the capital of art. Feliks Jasieński donated about 15,000 art objects from the Far and Middle East, Poland and other European countries to to the National Museum in Cracow. Japanese art was represented by approximately 6,500 items, including paintings, sculptures, fabrics, kimonos, obi sashes, lacquerware, ceramics, enamelware, bronzes, dyeing stencils, decorative arts objects, arms and armours.
