CSULB Art History Professor Kendall Brown in new book on Huntington Library’s Japanese Garden

Posted on September 25, 2013 by School of Art

Dr. Kendall Brown has contributed two essays to the book One Hundred Years in the Huntington’s Japanese Garden: Harmony with Nature, about the history of the Huntington Library’s iconic and beloved garden. The book traces the garden’s history from its development as part of a Gilded Age millionaire’s fashionable estate through its quiet deterioration and neglect during World War II and its resurgence in the 1950s as a showcase for Japanese culture and garden arts to its comprehensive renovation in 2012, the year of its centennial. For information, click here.
