Japanese Art in England


On 13th June, HIH Princess Akiko of Mikasa delivered the lecture about the History of Japanese Art in England at Kyoto Sangyo University in Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture.

HIH Princess Akiko once researched William Anderson’s collection at the British Museum when she was a doctoral student at Oxford University.
William Anderson (1842-1900) was an English surgeon who taught anatomy and surgery in Japan and became an important scholar and collector of Japanese art.

HIH Princess Akiko also participated in the panel discussion about the Rinpa School, one of the major historical schools of Japanese painting.
