The Cooperative Program for the Conservation of Japanese Art Objects Overseas

Many Japanese cultural properties are housed in collections overseas, especially in the West. However, the number of conservators and restorers outside Japan who are able to work on those objects is small. Therefore, conservation treatments cannot be done using appropriate methods at the right moment. The absence of such conservation means that the objects cannot be exhibited and that damage may become extremely severe. In this program, paintings and urushi objectse that have been housed in collections overseas are restored.
