In their ambition to capture “real life,” Japanese painters, poets, novelists and photographers of the nineteenth century collaborated in ways seldom explored by their European contemporaries. This course offers learners the chance to encounter and appreciate behavior, moral standards and some of the material conditions surrounding Japanese artists in the nineteenth century, in order to renew our assumptions about what artistic “realism” is and what it meant.

It has expanded my views not only on Japan Visual and Literary Culture but also has open for me a new way of looking at portraits in different cultures and times. Thank you so much
Very knowledgeable lecturer with a gentle humble voice. Much was learned about literary portraits from 18th/19th centuries to literary photographs in the early 20th century.
The course is very interesting. It not only introduces the traditional Japanese art with its comments but also talks about the photos and postcards.
i loved it! it was very detailed in terms of historical literature and photographic culture and the narrator really explained everything very well.
Great course, excellent teaching by sensei. ALthough subtitles sometimes are wrongly interpreted (like 'major restoration' nstead of 'Meiji'
the lecturer is knowledgeable and engaging. it greatly enriched my appreciation of japanese arts and culture. i highly recommend it.
Interesting material. Lectures were slightly repetitious in describing points about some photographs but were interesting overall.
It was a truly enlightening and highly enjoyable course with an amazing lecturer. My gratitude to all who was involved.
