     On November 15, Prof. Yasuyoshi Saito of the University of Tsukuba gave a public lecture entitled “Dream of Evanescence: Nihonga and the Scholarship of Tenshin Okakura”, introducing the life and work of Okakura, who established the Japan Art Institute (Nihon Bijutsuin) in 1898 during the Meiji period.

   The lecture focused on the story of how Nihonga was preserved through the efforts of Okakura and his collaborators, discussing issues of national identity construction through art amongst the background of one of Japan's most interesting historical periods.

     Prof. Saito is a curator, researcher and professor. He was a curator at the Tokyo Metropolitan  Art Museum for twenty years, and has written articles and performed lectures from David Hockney to Anthony Caro, community-based art, Okakura Tenshin, among others.
