Richard Lane (1926–2002) was a scholar, author, collector, and dealer of Japanese art, who was born in Kissimmee, Florida. After graduating from high school in 1944, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, where he was trained as a Japanese translator. He served as a marine in Japan during World War II. Lane received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Hawaii in Japanese and Chinese literature. He continued his studies at Columbia University, where he earned a master’s degree and a Ph.D in Eighteenth century Japanese literature. In 1957, he moved to Japan, where he lived for the rest of his life. In 1960 he married a physician named Chiyeko Okawa, to whom he remained married until her death in 1999.

Lane was never on a university faculty, but supported himself as an author, dealer and consultant. His publications include:

Lane and the Honolulu Academy of Arts

Richard Lane was a visiting research associate at the Honolulu Academy of Arts from 1957 to 1971, during which time he helped catalogue the James A. Michener collection of Japanese prints. In 2002, Lane died intestate and without heirs in Kyoto, Japan, and the Honolulu Academy of Arts purchased his collection from the Japanese judicial authorities. The Lane Collection consisted of nearly 20,000 paintings, prints and books. From October 2008 to February 2009, the Honolulu Academy of Arts exhibited a sampling of the collection under the title “Richard Lane and the Floating World”.
