Lecture

Asian Art and History
An Introduction to Japan's Architecture Through History

Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning


Nancy S. Steinhardt, Ph.D., Professor of East Asian Art and Curator of Chinese Art, University of Pennsylvania

Japan’s most spectacular architecture is also its most distinctive, and each distinctive building type is associated with a period of Japanese history.  This lecture introduces the Japanese shrine, mounded tomb, early monastery, mountain temple, Zen monastery, castle, tea house and imperial mausoleum. The building types are presented in chronological order so that the periods of Japanese history also will be introduced.

This presentation is part of the Asian Art and History series.
