About this Item

Title

  • Modern Japanese Arts and Crafts in Kyoto: From Asai Chu to Yagi Kazuo

Other Title

  • Modern Japanese Arts and Crafts

Summary

  • Contact with the West transformed art in Japan during the first half of the 20th century, especially in the works of the painter Asai Chu (1856-1907) and the ceramicist and teacher Yagi Kazuo (1918-1979), according to Shigemi Inaga. Inaga, who holds the Chair of Modern Culture at the John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress, gives a lecture titled "Modern Japanese Arts and Crafts in Kyoto: From Asai Chu to Yagi Kazuo" in a program sponsored by the Library's Kluge Center. Inaga's discussion of Western influence on Japanese art is based on his research conducted at the Library of Congress and on a soon-to-be-published book that he edited, "Rethinking Traditional Arts and Crafts Inside and Outside Kyoto."
