Kaikodo, ¡§The Hall of Embracing Antiquity,¡¨ was established in Japan in 1983 by Howard and Mary Ann Rogers. They rapidly became known in Japan and beyond as an important source for fine and rare Asian paintings, bronzes, and ceramics for museums and private collectors worldwide. In 1996 the Rogers established a gallery on New York City¡¦s Upper East Side and were soon joined by Carol Conover, a well-known specialist in the field, who serves as Director of the gallery. Kaikodo organizes two major exhibitions annually and has produced over 30 volumes of the Kaikodo Journal, which is the gallery's exhibition catalogue and a source of scholarly research as well. Paintings and works of art from Kaikodo are now held by more than 80 museums across the globe.
