On Five Hundred Luohan Painting of Daitokuji: Its Production Context and Art Historical Significance in the History of Southern Song Painting

Ide Seinosuke, Professor, Art Studies, Kyushu University

Ide Seinosuke is Professor of Art Studies at Kyushu University (Japan). Professor Ide is the leading scholar of Chinese and Korean Buddhist art in Japan. Ide specializes in East Asian Buddhist paintings from China and Korea, dating from the 11th through 14th centuries. His interregional perspective allows for a new understanding of the circulation of pictorial objects in East Asia. Ide’s book Song and Yuan Buddhist Paintings in Japan (in Japanese) won the prestigious Kokka Prize in 2001. He has also authored three significant volumes on very different subjects: a book on Southern Song painting, primarily painting of the Imperial Academy (Nansō no kaiga, 1998), a volume on the Buddhist art of the Chinese port city of Ningbo (Ninpō no bijutsu to kai’iki kōryū, 2009), and a book on the role of advanced digital imaging techniques in art history (Light and Color, 2009). Professor Ide was nominated by the Department of Art and Art History.
