DIA Japanese Art Display & Lecture (10/24/10)

October 1st, 2010 · No Comments · Events

Join us at the Detroit Institute of Arts on October 24th, 2010 for a display of Charles Lang Freer’s collection of Asian art. There will be a free lecture by Ann Yonemura starting at 3:00PM at the DIA Lecture Hall. This will be followed by a Benefit Reception and tours of the Charles Lang Freer House at 4:30PM.

During the years 1892 to 1907, the arts of japan-ceramics, prints, Buddhist sculpture, and paintings-became an important focus for Detroit collector Charles Lang Freer (1854-1919). In the subtle glaze tonalities of Japanese stoneware, in the subjects, formats, and styles of japanese paintings, and in the contemplative serenity of Buddhist sculpture, Freer perceived aspects of universal beauty that informed his collecting of Asian and American art during a critical period in japan’s emergence as a modern nation.
