Scent and Symbolism: Perfumed Objects and Images

April 6 – July 2, 2017

The experience of scent brings to the forefront one of humankind’s most powerful yet enigmatic senses. Scent and Symbolism: Perfumed Objects and Images will consider the role of scent in the history of art through a collection of 140 scent bottles from the seventeenth through twentieth century from the collection of the Umi-Mori Art Museum in Hiroshima, Japan. The exhibition will also reveal how the sense of smell has been described by painters over time: woven into allegory and literal experience, medicinal and spiritual use, as a tool of seduction, and a product for consumption.
