 Cover. A kogo, or Japanese incense box for chanoyu (tea ceremony) use, c. 1870. It is of unglazed white earthenware with polychrome painted decoration, portraying a Noh drama character. This kogo is one of some 3,500 assembled by the late French statesman Georges Clemenceau, the largest and finest collection in the world. Acquired by the late Joseph Arthur-Simard of Montreal, the collection was donated to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts which has loaned it to the Indianapolis Museum of Art for a special US exhibition.
