About this Item

Title
Modern Japanese Arts and Crafts in Kyoto: From Asai Chu to Yagi Kazuo
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."
