A Major Gift of Japanese Treasures

Collection of the Art Fund, Inc. at the Birmingham Museum of Art; Gift of Dr. Roy T. Ward.

Dr. Roy T. Ward from Watkinsville, Georgia, has been a friend of the Museum for over twenty years. His first donation of Japanese prints to the collection came in 1995, and, since then, he has generously donated other outstanding Japanese prints and woodblock printed books to the Museum. This past summer Dr. Ward invited Donald Wood, the Museum’s Asian Art curator, to visit and choose gifts for the Museum from his collection.
