This event has ended.

When Kyoto College of Industry, predecessor to the Faculty of Engineering and Design, was established in 1902, the first faculty members brought back from abroad many important art works and specimens, preparing for new programs of education in design and industrial art. Among these instructors was Goichi Takeda, the first head of the Design Department, who paved the way for the school, having been the first exchange student to Europe. Chu Asai, one of the most noteworthy Western-style painters of the Meiji period (1868-1912), was also a professor in the Design Faculty at the school. Korin Furuya, who studied charcoal drawing with Asai Chū, became a teacher at the Kyoto City School of Arts and Crafts (founded in 1880), where he reached the rank of assistant professor in 1905.
The first of this series, this exhibition focuses on these key figures for the Kyoto College of Industry and Kyoto City School of Arts & Crafts - Chu Asai, Goichi Takeda, Sekka Kamisaka, and Korin Furuya. Education within the schools are compared through the key curriculum data collected.
