    Okakura Kakuzo (1863 –1913, 岡倉天心 Okakura Tenshin) was a Japanese scholar who
    contributed to the development of arts in Japan. Having studied under Harvard-educated
    professor Ernest Fenollosa, he became one of the founders of Tokyo School of Fine Arts,
    and a year later became its head. Invited by William Sturgis Bigelow, he became the first
    head of the Asian art division at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1910.
