Caring for Japanese Arts at the Chester Beatty Library


Caring for Japanese Art at the Chester Beatty Library is a memoir of Yoshiko Ushioda, looking back at more than five decades of life in Dublin. The story begins in 1960, when she travelled from Tokyo with her young son to join her husband, a research fellow at University College Dublin. Beginning as a volunteer at the Chester Beatty Library in 1970, she would go on to become a curator and accompany masterpieces loaned by The Chester Beatty Library to special exhibitions all around the world.

Both inspiring and heartfelt, Mrs Ushioda’s memoir will be of interest to both lovers of Japanese Art and those interested in Irish-Japanese relations. Written by Yoshiko Ushioda.
