Museum of Asian Art
The Museum of Asian Art was founded in 1927 and is owed to a remarkable Greek collector of Asian art: In 1919, Grigorios Manos donated his extremely interesting collection to the Greek state under the condition that a museum would be established in Corfu, specifically in the Palace of St. Michael and St. George.
Some of the most interesting artifacts to be seen in the Museum are the Masks of the No Theater in Japan, dated to the Edo period I1615-1868), the wood-cuts of Kitagava Utamaro from Japan (1753-1806), Chinese porcelain vases of the green group dated to the K’ang-hsi period (1662-1722), Statuettes from China, dated to the T’ang dynasty (7th-8th centuries A.D.), objects made from nephrite (Ch’ing dynasty, 1644-1912) and Hindu wood carving for the 17th-19th centuries.
