Event Details

The handscroll painting entitled ‘Theatres of the East’, is a sumptuous, attractive and engaging representation of the theatre district in Edo (today’s Tokyo) in the year 1700. Study of the handscroll has yielded ever greater insights into its content and art historical importance, but in a remarkable discovery the painting turns out to be one of a pair. In her talk, Dr Buckland will explore this fascinating painting, together with the world of Kabuki theatre in the early 18th century and the background to the scroll’s production.

 

Rosina Buckland read Japanese Studies at the University of Cambridge and after graduating worked in Japan as a translator. She received a PhD in Art History from the Institute of Fine Arts (New York University) and worked at the British Museum for several years, before taking up the position of curator of the Japanese collections at the National Museum of Scotland (Edinburgh). She is currently planning the Museum’s new East Asia gallery.
