The Smithsonian's Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery and The Metropolitan Center for Far Eastern Art Studies in Kyoto, Japan, today announced that Andrew M. Watsky, associate professor of Japanese and Chinese art history at Vassar College, is the winner of the eighth biennial competition of the Shimada Prize for an outstanding publication on the history of East Asian art.
Watsky constructs his argument through a rigorous, textured study of the Tsukubusuma Shrine on the sacred island of Chikubushima, located in Shiga Prefecture, north of the ancient capital of Kyoto.
Eschewing conventions in Japanese art history that tend to treat media in isolation from one another, Watsky analyzes the architecture, painting, lacquerware, relief wood carving, metalwork and architectural coloring in an integrated fashion to understand the true nature of this palimpsest-like structure.
Meticulously researched, elegantly structured and beautifully written, Watsky's book exemplifies the ideals upon which the Shimada Prize was founded. The translated documentation in the appendix and 150 reproductions (more than 60 in color) reflect the author's commitment to his subject and discipline and ensure that this study will serve for years to come as a veritable textbook for the art and cultural history of one of the most dynamic eras in premodern Japan.
Watsky received his bachelor's degree from Oberlin College and his master's degree and doctorate from Princeton University. His book "Chikubushima: Deploying the Sacred Arts in Momoyama Japan" also was awarded the Association for Asian Studies' John Whitney Hall Book Prize in 2006.

Vassar College associate professor of art Andrew Watsky has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship award.
Watsky, who joined the Vassar faculty in 1994, was awarded the fellowship to research named objects in Momoyama-period Japan, a period from the late 16th to early 17th century marked by increasing political unity.
Beginning in July, Watsky's yearlong research will place him on academic leave, and allow him to write and travel to Japan.
The Guggenheim-sponsored work will focus on the naming of objects of art during the period, including ceramic bowls, tea containers, and other vessels.Even stones were given proper names and meanings in Japanese culture.
Watsky has previously received research grants from the Social Science Research Council and the American Council of Learned Societies, Fulbright-Hays, the Japan Foundation, and the Tokyo National Research Institute of Cultural Properties.
