BC. Laurence Binyon

30. Impressions of Japanese Art. Kokusai bunka shinkôkai 2,600 anniversary essay series. Tokyo: Kokusai bunka shinkôkai, 1941.

Notes derived from earlier Binyon publications, especially Japanese Art (6). Few books by English writers were published in Tokyo in the early forties, and while the aim of the publication would have been at least in part to demonstrate to Japanese readers that their artistic heritage was valued even by important men in Europe, the edition, published by the ‘Society for International Culture’ remains a testimonial to the esteem held for Binyon in Japan even at the height of anti-British and anti-American sentiment.
