Excerpt from Guide to the Exhibition of Chinese and Japanese Paintings in the Print and Drawing Gallery
The present Exhibition consists of a selection from the extensive collection of Japanese and Chinese paintings purchased for the Museum in 1881 from Mr. William Anderson, f... ormerly medical officer to Her Majesty's Legation, Japan. That collection has been fully described in the official catalogue prepared by Mr. Anderson, and published by order of the Trustees in 1886. The subject has been further treated by the same author in his illustrated work, The Pictorial Arts of Japan, published in the same year. To these books, as well as to the work of M. Gonse, l'art Japonais, the student is referred for more detailed informa tion than the limits of the present guide admit concerning the history of the several schools and masters represented, and the nature and meaning of the subjects which they depict.
