Special collections

The special collections feature a series of 15 modern Japanese woodcut prints gifted to the Sursock Museum by the Embassy of Japan in Lebanon in 1966 following an exhibition at the Museum that same year.

The special collections also include 250 printed photographs of Lebanese architecture by the Museum’s first conservator Camille Aboussouan. These images capture typologies of palaces and houses, architectural patterns, and masonry styles in great detail.

Please note that the images below are not a comprehensive selection of the Sursock Museum's special collections. Our database is currently under construction, and we are working toward making it accessible online.
