Professor Gregory Levine will lead the group on a rare opportunity to visit the Daitokuji subtemple Juko-in, which is known its famous Kano Eitoku screens and its connection to the Sen tea family. Last year, the Eitoku screens were removed from the temple and placed in the custody of the Kyoto National Museum. Reproductions of these screens have been subsequently been installed in place of the originals.
His talk (with the viewing of the temple and the recently reproduced screens) is entitled "Digital Eitoku: What's a Contextualist Art Historian to Do?" The talk will also include discussion of the "triptych" arrangement theory on the north wall of the shitchu, the dating debate over the building, as well as the implications for study of Jukoin's paintings post-replacement.
