Raku tea bowls have been rever ed since their first appearance in 16th-century Japanese tea ceremonies. In the West\, the term \;raku \;refers to a quick\, low-fire technique for making ceramics. Few know that this method traces its histor y back to a Japanese family of potters or\, more specifically\, to the orig inator of the technique\, Raku I (Chōjirō)\, who lived in the 1500s. Since then\, a single person named Raku has represented each of the 15 generation s\, and Raku masters have produced vessels for each generation of Tea Cerem ony teachers and their followers.

\n

Thi s exhibition comprises nearly 100 Raku masterpieces with examples from each Raku Master. Over half of the ceramic objects in the exhibition are tea bo wls\; there are two Registered Important Cultural Properties and one Regist ered Important Art Object. Other works include incense containers and burne rs\, food utensils\, water jars\, and other objects used in the Japanese Te a Ceremony.

\n

This exhibition will be t he first of its kind ever held in the United States\, and LACMA is its only U.S. venue. It was co-organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art\, the Raku Museum and the Japan Foundation. Air transportation was provided b y Japan Airlines.

The four paintings in this ins tallation constitute a major achievement for artist Paolo Veronese. Three f eature allegories of navigation&mdash\;a subject particularly relevant to V enice\, a city of merchants and traders who depended on ancient but precise technology to traverse the Mediterranean. The fourth painting features an& nbsp\;allegory of sculpture\, which may seem unexpected\, but in fact refle cts the rich and complex culture of Veronese&rsquo\;s time\, when art and s cience\, literature\, mathematics\, architecture\, and painting all went ha nd in hand.

\n

In 2014\, the two LACMA p aintings traveled to London to be included in an exhibition at the National Gallery. An exciting discovery was made at the same time: the canvases had a matching set\, belonging to the Region of Piedmont in Italy. In need of conservation\, the matching set could not be included in the London exhibit ion\, but they were eventually shown alongside the LACMA paintings\, first in Vicenza\, and then in Turin. This exhibition presents a unique opportuni ty to see the four paintings reunited in Los Angeles.

\n

This exhibition is organized by the Los Angeles County Mus eum of Art and made possible by The Ahmanson Foundation. The organizers are grateful for the exceptional loans from La Venaria Reale Consorzio di Valo rizzazione Culturale\, Turin.

Skullcups\, thunderbolts\, fla ying knives\, conch shells\, and many other evocative works of art in this exhibition were created for use during esoteric ceremonies performed to obt ain mundane blessings\, such as those to attain wealth or avert calamities\ , or to overcome negative spiritual forces hindering enlightenment. Example s include Tibetan religious paintings (thangka)\, illuminated manu scripts\, and furniture\, all depicting myriad ritual objects and symbolic offerings to the Buddhist protective deities known as the dharmapala\, who are believed to defend and foster Buddhism.

\n

The selection of works on view also highlights special offe ring cabinets (torgam) that protect offering cakes (torma ) made of yak butter and roasted barley flour dough. Such cabinets are embe llished with auspicious symbols and gruesome motifs emblematic of the parti cular protective deity being invoked.

\n

This exhibition is dedicated to the late Ruth Sutherlin Hayward\, the pion eering collector and principal donor of the Tibetan furniture now in LACMA& rsquo\;s collection.
