From the Meiji era to today of Heisei, we developed the traditional skill and beauty gorgeously in Japan and reclaimed possibility of molding and industrial arts in the new times was uninterrupted and was brought. We appealed for charm of various material such as ceramics and glass, japanner, dyeing and weaving, metalworking, doll, and we insisted on free creation expression that we met in the times, and many writers played an active part. The various art raises international evaluation without staying in the country.

We planned enhancement of collection that could inspect the genealogy of industrial arts historically in modern times as art while doing trend of folkcraft and modern industrial development to main shaft since we opened industrial arts building in National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo in 1977 and acted for field particularly important in total and work collection of writers.

By book exhibition, we select approximately 130 points of perfect gems carefully from such many store works, and "industrial arts in ④ postwar period" introduces by the industrial beauty and power and rich charm "individual writer of citizen of ③ art" in in "the Showa first half year from the Taisho era when industrial arts established work of today's writer "industrial arts in the Meiji era when we were energetic in the ① world" in ② modern times" from the Meiji era while "⑤ folkcraft" reviews the history of industrial arts development by six copies of constitution of "modern industrial arts in Japanese modern times from in the ⑥ 1980-90 generation".
