Scent and Symbolism: Perfumed Objects and ImagesApril 6-July 2

4339 Park Avenue
Memphis, TN 381117 United States

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.
