"Modernism and the Museum...provides interesting and exacting substantiation for the role of Eastern and African art in forming the early underpinnings of modernism...[It] adds substantial new evidence to our understanding of modernist artists' first engagement with Asian, Pacific, and African art in the early years of a new enemy." --Journal of British Studies

Rupert Richard Arrowsmith grew up in Kenya, the Seychelles, and Cornwall in the Southwest of England. He has an MA from UCL, and completed his DPhil at Oxford University (Christ Church) in 2008. He has spent more than ten years studying and teaching in various parts of Asia - including long periods in Japan, Burma, Singapore, and India - and has previously lectured at Oxford and SOAS. His research focuses on transcultural tendencies in literature and visual art, particularly with regard to influences from Eastern and Southern Asia on global culture during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
