Welcome > Art


The questions are:

"When did Takamine start to collect art and why?"

"Aside from artistic merit did he see art as a practical skill of teachers in the 19th century?"

"Did Takamine influence Fenollosa?  There is not question that Takamine was the cultural interpreter and assisted in networking on behalf of many foreigners. However, is the old model of Fenollosa bringing the notion of modern art appreciation to Japan innaccurate?"
