In 2017, KUFS’s University Museum of Cultures has received a donation of 1,272 materials from the former Ohara Hōun Museum as the “Miyatake Collection”.
Tatsuo Miyatake (1892-1960) was born in Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture, and graduated from the Tokyo Fine Arts School (current Tokyo University of the Arts) in 1915. He began chasing after indigenous art around the world since 1919, and continued his research by living among the indigenous people. According to his book, he has collected as much as 4,000 materials along the way.
This exhibition will be held to commemorate the addition of our “Miyatake Collection”. We hope that you will enjoy Miyatake’s passion filled “The Indigenous Arts of the World” along with images and descriptions that explain some of the materials from the collection.
