Felix Tikotin (1893-1986) was an architect, art collector, founder of the first Museum of the Japanese art in the Middle East. Born in Germany to a Jewish family, his ancestors had returned with Napoleon from Russia from a town called Tikocyn. Tikotin grew up in Dresden and became involved with the artistic group of "Die Bruecke." Tikotin began collecting art in high school. He wanted to study painting, but became an architect. In World War I, he was an officer in the German army, fighting first on the Western front in Belgium and later in the East. After the war, he traveled to Japan on the Trans-Siberia Express. He fell in love with Japanese culture and in April 1927, he opened his own gallery in Berlin.show more
