July 7-Aug. 30

To commemorate 20 years since the death of Lucie Rie, one of Europe’s most renowned studio potters of the 20th century, the Chiba City Museum of Art is presenting her creative legacy through a retrospective of her work.

Recognized internationally, Rie proved particularly popular in Japan, where collections of her pieces have been displayed at many shows. This exhibition brings together approximately 200 items, spanning the course of her career and the development of her brightly colored, modernist yet delicate works.

Included among the exhibits will be some pieces from her collegiate years, which were recently discovered by the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art, and are being shown in Japan for the first time.
