8th Kaitokudo Archive Lecture "Appraising Kaitokudo -- What Forged Calligraphic Works and Paintings tell us"

2009-11-17 (Tue) -

The Kaitokudo Library has a large collection of calligraphic works and paintings by Confucian scholars, including works by NAKAI Chikuzan and NAKAI Riken, both of whom worked for Kaitokudo. The Kaitokudo Commemoration Association also continues to collect items and a lot of works have been donated by citizens. However, unfortunately, within these collections there are items which can only be considered as forgeries.

In this seminar, we will consider how these forgeries came to be by examining the signatures and seals on the works. Additionally, we'd like to consider how best to add to the Kaitokudo-related collections in the future.

The Kaitokudo Archive Lectures have been held since 2003 in order to introduce the history and allure of Kaitokudo as well as the results of important surveys and research about the Kaitokudo Library.
